PlaYinG around in PhotoshoP

I took the photo (top) from the car while sitting at the intersection of U.S.1 and Old Griffin Road (and, yes, there is a "new" Griffin Road). When I got it up on the computer, I found I really like the image, so I started messing around with Photoshop's filters.

The black and white imagebelow is what happened after I applied the "ink outlines" filter.

The color image illustrates what the "graphic pen filter" does to the image.

Kinda cool, huh?
The filters give the photograph a surrealistic quality, making me think of Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane back in the late 1960s. Things look different from what they really are.
Now, I must ask: is this art?
