Here is something a little on the lighter side. A watercolor ala Trimoon.

For those that prefer a little darker result, this was obtained by running the Trimoon "Good Watercolor" action on the previous result. Backing out the texture via history, applying Sandstone at 6, and fading to 50%.

Wanted to see what Redfield's bas-relief would do with this one.
Started with Lucis, then 2 layers of Redfield's gizmo. Tweaked colours with selective colour, to darken the blacks, and boost the whites, also tweaked reds and yellows.
Added a texture though hard to see it here.

A variety of things including hues, levels and a dash of gaus.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #49 – Park Bench

It's been good to see everyone's different approaches...

I just followed this tutorial here: http://www.photoshopcafe.com/tutoria...tch/sketch.htm

Followed by a bit of lightening and darkening on the bench, and a crop and vignette.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #49 – Park Bench

I recently downloaded trial versions of Topaz Adjust, Clean and Simplify and then I headed right over here to RetouchPro where I knew I would find lots of great images to play with.

This is the result of using all three plugins on the photo. I was trying for a watercolor effect and am pleased with the result, considering I have only had the plugins for a few hours. I think when my 30 days are up I will be spending some money at that website.

I have let other things pull me away from my Photoshop time for too long, will try to get back here more often now.

Thanks for looking at my attempt,
Barb

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #49 – Park Bench

Tried to highlight the bench and chair frame while at the same time carrying the eye to the beautiful color of the woods.
1. changed to a square format and brought the bench and chair frame to the foreground
2. ramped up the tree background color and used a paint effect to soften
3. highlight the foreground with green and brought out the detail a bit

The second version I tried to highlight the central trees and smudge the background. The forest fire effect was not planed, going for fall colors and got carried away.
