With the accent on Jazz for this challenge, I expect that most people will be taking either a "modern" or an artistic approach to this challenge.

I thought that I would try something more traditional for my effort.

Ummm, just what world did that tradition come from?

I think I like it. (I've got to sit down for a while to get over my initial dizzy spell)

Phyllis, thanks. I used PShop Artistic->Rough Pastels for texture, and then used the Distort->Twirl at about 50 on the masked guitar surfaces.

Oops, sorry Phyllis. The abstract interpretation was done in PS6 with the art history brush (I like the art history brush ). I used three different types:
Texture size 60 Dab style
Charcoal size ~60 Loose long style
Stipple size ~30 Tight medium style

I just experimented around with each one until I came up with something that I liked!

The last thing I did was change the blending mode to Luminosity set at 100% opacity.

Thanks David.

It was dead simple really...

- Cutout (8, 0, 3) on the original
- "Old World Color" action by Randall Smith.
- Underpainting - faded back to about 38%
- Filter->Render->Lens flare to create white circle at back of photo
- Filter->Blur->Glass (Tiny lens texture) - fade to 17%
- Levels to contract dynamic range
- Curves to taste
- Filter->Distort->Polar (polar to rectangular) - Difference mode - faded against original to 42%
- Plastic Wrap - fade to 21%

I was quite happy with it, although I think most will not like it. Thanks for the "wow".

Toad- I think it's great! I love all the colors. It's something I could see hanging in my office.

RE: "Dead simple"?
I'd say exceptionally creative, myself. Really appreciate the detailed how-to.

This is a stand out (in the good sense) image.
