Tree Barc Structure

I go on a photo walk with other enthusiasts on a regular basis. Our last topic was structures. We have been hiking through a forest to go to a castle. There have been many trees with great barc structures. Unfortunately, this one, which I liked the most was not sharp enough. I tried to improve the sharpness of the picture with Lightroom but did not like the result. Later I tried the oil painting filter in Photoshop and was amazed on how this softened the appearance without making it blurry. Of course if you zoom in or display the picture in high res you can see something is definitely wrong here.
