Re: 5 Minute Art

Another go, i wanted to see if i could do a ahb version in the 5 mins, well i sort of did but began messing round with the colour instead of tidying the outside up which i would of preferred to do with hindsight .

Re: 5 Minute Art

nancy, not sure what the 'strange' is in the image. it's a scan of a negative saved in .tiff and later converted to .jpg for posting here. maybe something odd in the alpha channel? what did you do and what were you expecting? and what was the information you found in the image?

Re: 5 Minute Art

The image on the left is what I would expect, the image on the right is what came out - doing the same steps.
What I did:
1. reduce noise max strength
2. autolevels
3. duplicate, invert and set to color dodge
3. gaussian blur the top layer

On the one on the left the original colour come through and the rest is white - this is the expected result
On the right - the colour from the top layer come through and the whole thing is overlayed with a cyan crazypaving kind of thing.

The culprit seems to be the red channel. Noise reduction seems to bring out information in the red channel and autolevels strengthens it (see second attachement)

In the original image its barely noticeable but the red channel is almost completely destroyed - but rebuilding it from approx 20% green restores it.

Re: 5 Minute Art

I had to have another go at this one. Don't ask what I did. It was a mish mash of things until the timer went. If I didn't like what I'd done, then I began again from the beginning (original photo) and did another 5-minute run. I even tried a fancy gradient map, that looked so awful after it was applied that I scrapped the idea entirely.

Great challenge. It has taught me how SLOW I really am.

Janet
