When I do these type of challenges I try not to look at everyone elses images until I have completed mine - that way the image still hopefully has a raw 'my vision' feel.
Now I have a bit of time I thought I would add some input to some of the other fantastic images that have been posted
I love your first image - the subtleness of its wood effect and sepia colour - wow!
All the others are great - you filter demon
Love the light effect on the fret board.
I like the way you mixed your filters
"Traditional guitar" I just love this and don't know where to start
I like the softness of your first image - but I like the frame of your second - Pencil sketch was lovely - You changed the name on the sheet music nice touch - I personally would have choosen a more jazz feel font - Love the images though
The one thing that stricks me is that everyone has produced there own musical feel, each individual and each very beautiful - I know I will be visiting these images again - for the inspiration
It did say Country dance....
Well, here's my try at the guitar. I offen find it very difficult to describe what I have done, as I do a little this and that, then try that, don't like it, go back and try some of this, put a little bit of something on and so on
But, I'll try;
I converted it to greyscale, then did a bit of tweeking in the Selective colors tool, where I tweeked just the white and the grey, to make the image "cleaner". Then I went over the photo with the erasor, making it even cleaner by taking away the grey areas on the guitar.
Used the "variations" tool to give it the blueish tone. Gave it some "Diffuse glow" and ran a soft action(called Walrus Fantasy Focus), but only on the guitar.
Then I ran a strong USM (50,50,0) which makes for high contrasts.
Finally I ran another action called "Walrus cowhidetexture" on parts of the guitar, to give it the countryfeel.
So, this kind of bacame "Cowboys meets AHA in Take on Me"

Very, very nice work, here. And WELCOME! It's a pleasure to have you join us.
If I'm not mistaken, I've seen the Walrus .atn's collection at Adobe Studio Exchange. [Just checked - yep. They are there. Did you download them from that site?] A couple are quite good.
For the benefit of those not familar with this registration-required site:
* Click Advanced Find
* Item name: Walrus
* Product: select photoshop from the dropdown
* Click OK
All the Walrus .atns will be displayed.
Thanks for posting and sharing your creativity. Glad you found us and hope to see more of your creative efforts in the near future!
Thank you Danny and Phyllis.
Yes, Danny you are right about where I got the action(and most of my Photoshop artifacts
Thank you for giving out the link and the procedure for others to find it, I should have thought about that too.
I'm really very happy about finding this place. I am a member of many photosites, but felt there was something missing. Most of them are more occupied with fighting over points , or patting eachothers backs , and the learningprosess has almost died . Here I found a breath of fresh air, great challenges with lots of talented people , and an oportunity to learn and grow.
(And yes, I go balistic when I see so many smileys to choose from )
Very nice work.. I visted you website and really enjoyed looking at your work..You will be a greatly appreciated addition to RP and I am looking forward to seeing more of your work..
Love the guitar image - the lighting effects that you produced by knocking the guitar colour back really give the image a punch
Just visted your web pages - fantastic - You create some beautiful images
I've been playing with the custom filter and found it's good for making light things into dark things without creating a negative look. First I turned pale Wally into a dark horse, and now tried to make this shiny tan guitar look like an old well-worn brown one.
Neat effect - I just had to go back and look at the original to get the total picture. This filter certainly has some uses.
