Third time's the charm, maybe...
I did a watercolor a la Vitaly this time around.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

Thanks Craig; still experimenting with getting the TK look. Not happy w.r.t. the sky part though since the technique I currently use amplifies sky and large void noise. Lots of work cleaning those areas and you know how lazy I am. lol

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

But not on weekends much now that I finally, at least, got a contract job (2 12 hour shifts) between 8pm and 8am. Also will be doing some subs too when those opportunities arise (Thursday evening for instance). Wish I had a real job though; the contract position ends after 90 days. Oh well; maybe more gigs will come of it.

That part is actually not hard, but carting 70+ PCs around several times during the 12 hour night shift is heavy work (didn't expect that when the job was first described to me; lol). Still, though its only a 3 month contract job, it still is a job.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

lol; no can do Craig. Once the data is retrieved, the PCs will get scrapted (almost tempted to take some of the XP license tags off for future reference, but I'm just too honest).

Phyllis,

Brilliant. Creative! Love it. Love the light, the mood, and the seamless composition.

Importantly, though, the perspective of the hotel is off. Either the water needed to be forced into correct perspective or the hotel needed to be. The water should be parallel to the ground plane.

I'd love to see more of your work.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

Thread necromancy, because I've been trying to get the hang of Vitaly's watercolour technique aqnd this seemed to be a good pic to work on.

Vitaly, if you're still about, your watercolour gallery is astounding and an inspiration.

Everyone else, a great thread and some great interpretations. I've thoroughly enjoyed looking through it.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

Hi all - I have never posted on here before and am pretty much a 'beginner' at this sort of thing. Have dabbled with photo art for awhile but only in experimenting and trying different things....no real plan of attack. I couldn't resist having a little bit of play with this photo while trying to get more acquainted with Photoshop Elements 8. I basically just used the Diffuse filter along with Xero's Illustrator filter and messed around with various blending modes.

Welcome, Magicshell...

Nice interpretation on this one. Glad you gave it some new life.

If you'd care to share a few words about your tools and methods, I'm sure many -- including myself -- would be interested in reading them.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

Danny, Here's some of the workflow for this painting. Prior to running several different DAP64 applications, I make enhancements in Photoshop including Topaz adjust 5, HDR Sketch. After I run DAP, I combine them in Photoshop and use masks and blending modes. I also apply a sketch layer and sometimes a watercolor layer. I add watercolor textures and papers and also use a lot of adjustment layers trying to achieve the watercolor look. Some of the tutorials that have helped are from Kapic http://kapic.ru/ and Piker 77's emulation.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #59 – Hotel in Valid

I haven't seen this post before so thanks for bringing it back, Magicshell. Your rendition is beautiful. Thanks for the tutorial link.

This version is a combination of SnapArt, DAP, and Akvis Sketch blended in photoshop with layer masks.

Thanks for sharing your approach. Some people use a lot of tools "just to use them." You use many tools and get very nice results.

Hope to see more of your creativity in the future.
