David:

Great way to start the thread! Very serene. I see what you mean. I liked #2 a little more than #1. When you get PS, you'll be unstopable!

Phil:

Nice touch adding the sunshine through the trees. Inspired idea.

Jerry:

Bambi drifts in from another mini-challenge! Perfect idea. I like the "sketchy blended black / white edge treatment," too.

Ken:

Sometimes the "keeping track" of all the gory details gets in the way of unbridled creativity. Great to just let go once in a while. Your experimenting definitely paid off and I can see why you were pleased.

Talking

This borders on too much fun.

We`ve all been involved in one of these conversations at some point, eh ?

I *borrowed * a couple of guys from another image, transformed them onto the bench, color corrected them, cloned some grass on them, then copied the original, ran the Angled strokes filter, set the new layer to soft light.

David, love the deep deep color...really effective.

Phili, that's great...love the gray/white simplicity with the bench in color.

Jerry, perfect place for Bambi! Like the way it fades away into a sketch.

Ken, again, like the fading. And the coloration.

I know what you mean, David, about the compression. I did two versions and liked them both, but NEITHER of them could be compressed enough and/or made small enough so that they'd fit the upload requirements and still look like the pictures they were meant to be. This picture, with all the leavese and trees, just has to be simplified. You guys all did a great job of doing just that. Maybe I'll try again...

yup, it really depends on the image, some look just fine at 60% compression, but on this one even at 90% i couldn't get the sharpness the same as it looked on my screen.

Docilebob...petrified is creepy! Very imaginative!

I also decided to put someone on the bench. I wanted a ghost to go with my night scene, but all I could find was a guy playing a guitar, so I decided to make him a "cowboy ghost." Hey, it's 3:30 a.m...whattaya expect?

Kinda like the Invisible Man takes a break. Good job Phyllis.
David, Philli, Docilbob, Ken, Jerry all great interpretations. David your's is really eerie and docilbob, that looks like the bench on my corner.

My aim here was to contrast the bare trees and bench with the rich coloration of autumn.

Mostly BuzzPro - simplifier - watercolor stack (inverted), watercolor stack (multiply), then overpainted parts with some of the first, simplified layer. Brought back the bench and trees with a layer mask.

Excellent, Jim. Separating the trees from the background must have taken some time. But worth it...looks great!
