Another FINE set of additions to this challenge...

WOODY:
#1 is killer! You're really getting the hang of the Etienne method.
#2 - talk about a variance in technique. From vibrant colors to subtle shades of gray. Nice job merging the textures.

-----------
SANDA:
The colors in the sky and the leaves really make this one stand out; a very effective combination of warm and cool.

-----------
DJ:
WOW! Gonna have to call start calling you Ms. Mosaic! I've fiddled with Painter's mosaic function, but haven't come remotely close to the results you're getting. Keep fine tuning this method and you'll have yet another desirable option to offer your customers.

-----------
KEN:
A belated WELCOME! to RetouchPRO. (I've been off the net for about a week.) Glad to see it didn't take you long to get into the spirit and we're honored you dove right into the fun pool.

Hope to see more of your work in the future!

-----------
You guys inspired me so much that I thought I'd take a swipe at this one myself. Used the action posted in
this thread.

Remember: It's YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS that make this forum (and this site) a success. My sincere thanks to each of you for taking the time and making the effort.

Thanks Danny. Hey for taking a swipe you got some cool results. I think I definately have to try that filter. It worked great on this image with all that stone work. I like how it outlines it.

QOM=Quaker Oat Meal ?

Qom, by the photo next to your name, I can only assume you named yourself after a cereal...cute.

I really like the painting of the bridge you did...love the way the bricks just pop out...looks better than the real thing!

Autumn Bridge

Fall is coming, and it gave me an idea for the bridge challenge.

I used cutout filter, anisotropic diffuse, a swirly texture for sky, and the PS7 leaf brush.

Oh that is really cool. It gives it a feel of swirling autumn winds. I really like that filter Phyllis. The effect was really made visual by the flying leaves. That would be a good one for your gallery.

Better late than never.

This image started out as an attempt by me to duplicate an effect that Toad posted on dpreview.com. (Apparently, one cannot link directly to a message in dpreview. Look for the post "Another Black and White Treatment".) This picture was not as visually engaging as Toad's so I decided to add some color rather than leave it in B&W.

I used Find Edges, Smart Blur Edges Only, Poster Edges, Ink outlines, Smudge Stick, and Graphic Pen all faded quite a bit. Then I put the original photograph on the top layer and faded to create the color wash. I then put a new layer filled with a pale tan on the top of the stack, added a layer mask and revealed the image beneath using a brush set to Dry Bush on Towel.

Basically, I was just foolin' around.
