Jim, ooooooo...right on! Love it!

BK...shudder...looks like the Chinese had a nuclear accident...wonder if GW Bush knows about this!

PJB, really neat effect...very creative use of filters.

I was rumaging around in the RetouchPRO attic, found this image and thought I'd give it a try.

Don't ask me how I did this, as it is nowhere near the result I had in mind. It just wanted to be a souvenir pin, no matter what I tried to do

Pam, that turned out great! I love the texture...looks like I can reach out and touch the leafy hedges. And the sunny yellow color really makes a difference on this (rather challenging, I thought) picture. Wonderful!

Phyllis,
Dragon Breath is a great description for your entry. You can feel the heat. Great job!

Don,
You achieved “old & uninviting”. It looks like a faded print and I agree with Phyllis that the ominous sky just makes you want to run for cover. Well done!

Jim,
Love the pattern stamp and dry brush results! Looks like you had fun.

Blacknight,
Chinese pavilion in black light…. love the neon colors.

PJB,
Nice sketch results and love the hints of color.

Pam,
Love the texture and you are right it does look like a souvenir pin!

Decided to play a little today....

Open image and adjusted with levels
Stylize - diffuse - anisotropic (to smooth image)
Duplicated layer - changed mode to screen
Duplicated layer - desaturate - fade desaturate
Deleted previous layer
New layer set to overlay
Stamp visible - change mode to burn
Desaturate - fade desaturate - emboss ( to add depth to image)
New layer - brush tool to create a bit of sun through the trees
Used airbrush to soften around image.

Done

TPaul, that's one of the best versions of this difficult challenge yet, in my opinion. I don't really know why, except possibly you got rid of that horrid pink color and the sharp edges. Hard to say why, but I really like what you've done here.

Thanks Phyllis! I really like the results of this one as well. I think what is appealing is the simplified edges and the brighter colors. Those basic steps really cleaned up the photo and made for quite a difference. Of course you should get some of the credit as I don't think I would have ever used the anisotropic filter until I saw some of your entries.
