Having a great time trying my hand on these oldies!
Three layers. The top layer (execpt the sky) opacity 50%, burned adn adjusted levels. The middle layer with a lensflare, th first layer unchanged.
I went on a Virtual Painter kick today and went looking through the old challenges for good candidates. This one worked well.
Bottom to top
A) VP watercolor
B) VP Pointillism—soft light
C) VP Pastel—color
D) VP Oil Painting—Lighten
E) VP Gouache—hue
F) Filter—Stylize—find edges—soft light 50%
K) Soft Sketch layer—Darken
c. Invert top copy
d. Color Dodge and Gaussian Blur (high 4-8)
e. Merge down and duplicate again
f. Multiply and Gaussian Blur (high 4-8)
G) Original –soft light
H) Pattern fill layer in soft light mode for texture
Some Retinex, Mr. Contrast, Impressionist, and Paint Engine play. Oh yes, NIK's free Colorfx warmth filter too.
an interesting effect. dont need the whole work flow, but some idea of how you achieved this?
also, an interesting choice of flow lines, especially in the water? why the contrasting flow lines there? i like the light blue as it tends to follow the flow of the water, but why the horizontal in the dark blue?
A combination thing.....Buzz, Gertrudis, and Impressionist. Used pencil strokes in Impressionist on the top layer and the result is what you see. I just kinda liked the maybe offbeat look.
