Woody and Darkstar

Ooooh Woody you have done it again...I love that pic of the barn by the mountains! Intense colors, soft but penetrating at the same time. Why don't you send that original to Danny so he can post it as a mini for us all to do...looks like one with endless possibilities. Pleeeeeez?
And let us see more! (Can't get enough of Woody

Darkstar, I love your first one...the dark one. The black edge detail really sets off every detail of the town, not just the stuff in the front. Great effect!

Phyllis, I'm afraid that the original pic is not mine. I borrowed it off a web site to practice on, so I don't think it would be a good idea to post it for all to work on as I do not own the image.

Okay, Woody, that makes sense.

Darn it.

New England Dock in Winter

I waited a long time before trying this challenge since there were SO MANY excellent interpretations that I had trouble of thinking of something new and different. Finally I changed the season!

First I inverted a dupe to make darks light and lights dark. then altered the color on hue/saturation.

I made the snow by eliminating the final (blurring step) of the blizzard action that came with PS7 and just blurred the sharp flakes with gaussian blur instead of the motion blur the action used, then reduced that layer to a fourth its size and spread those smaller versions over the layer.

Last I used an outline method on a b/w layer and blended it at low opacity to bring out edges which had been hidden too much by the snow.

Talking snowy boat dock

Very nice Phyllis! The season change did the trick! I like the accumulation of snow near the water's edge.

Woody

P.S. I took delivery of a WACOM tablet yesterday. I highly recomend it! I've got a lot to learn about it but so far it is spectecular on selection work. See attachment.

Woody,
Do you mean that all your photo art challenges were done using only a mouse?

I am impressed more than ever.

Talking mouse/tablet

Yes, up 'til now. I have not submitted anything yet using my Wacom tablet, except the tiger knockout.

Glad to see you guys-n-gals are still having fun with this mini. Keep 'em coming!

Phyllis: It's TOO EARLY to start thinking snow! (nice pic, anyway)

Hi Don:

WELCOME! to Retouch Pro and, in particular, the Photo-art forum.

Really like what I could see of your pic (see below); subtle colors and texturing. Greatly appreciate the great detail in your description, too.

Do me a favor: Try opening the attachment on your machine. On mine I only get about the top 1/3. Is it me? If so, I'll have to kick my computer (again)! If not try a re-upload. Click EDIT for your post and in the 'attachment' box, select 'upload new attachment' and go from there.

Again, welcome. Hope to see more of your work, along with the stellar detail.

~DannyR~

Ah... Now that I can see the whole picture, I like it even more!

Your careful background blurring and isolation of the building/boat + very realistic water treatment is very, very effective.

Hope you have time in the near future to plow through a few more of these. Great stuff.

By blurring the background like that you gave it a 3D look that is really cool. Reminds me of a scene in a veiw master.

Very cool effect. I second DJ's comment. Looks like a diorama.
