You did this in GIMP? Very impressive.
And welcome. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.

You got your money's worth out of the filter splurge! Very cool results.
What's up with the edging / frame? Special effects? Plugin? Your native creative talent?

Late to the party. "Chi in a glass" is one of your BEST yet.
Hi Danny, glad you are recovering
As mentioned, everything was done with PS7 filters. The frame edge was just a selection that was copied to another layer then I added a shadow effect using layer styles. The slight border frame effect was done with another selection feathered to about 25 then inverted. I think it was glass filter.
Looker, that's awesome...like post-apocalyptic Chicago. I recognize craquelure filter and glass and...wow, you weren't kidding that you used all of them! LOL! Great results though. And your edging is just perfect for the scene you've created.
I think the real secret to photo art, like any art, is not in the technical knowledge of what to use for what purpose so much as to know when something looks good, regardless of how you got there. You have a good eye...no wonder your name is Looker.
Vijayan--you fit an incredible amount of detail into this one.
I went with Virtual Painter layers again.
Bottom to top (sorry ellerton--I didn't save the settings)
impasto--lighten (either gouache or impasto got cut to 50%--I can't remember which one)
Topped with a couple of sketch layers and a texture.
I was born in Chicago but moved away when I was very young... but I can still remember the lights at night...
