Yeh, nothing difficult. It's just sliced down through the middle of the dome, duplicated and flipped! As you said, you sensed something was different. That's all I'm trying to do, seems the majority here have been at this longer than me and are the experts with the filters. Some using filters I have never heard of! Thr bottom of that picture is the flood filter (Flaming Pear) which was a freebie on a disk with a photographic magazine I bought this week here in UK. Looks like Phyllis has got it as well! Someone was asking about the ripples I did in one of the other photos, that is "Flood " as well.

Frank:

I like both the horizontal and the vertical mirror versions. Again, a very creative approach and nicely spliced. The flood filter can do some pretty amazing things.

Phyllis:

Sketch version came out especially well. Did you do anything out of the ordinary to get these out of the ordinary results?

JR Hotel try...

I just started playing around so I don't have all the steps...

Added a Level's layer
Added a Posterize layer and then did some mask layering stuff (pretty technical, heh? ha ha ha)

Anyhow, got to this and liked it, so I stopped.

Don, yes, I thought of that same thing. Too bad our challenge pic wasn't the Statue of Liberty. Which would be a good one, btw, Danny... hint hint.

Frank, love the reflection in the river. That walkway does look like it belongs by a river, and you finished it beautifully.

Jeff, I like how your technique looks on the trees...brought out a nice 3-D puffy look!

Danny, yes I did something different in the sketch. I used Trimoon's method, basically, but in the blur/dodge layer step, I did two versions of this procedure then combined them with mixed opacity.

The first was a sharp outline with the normal blur method. For the second, which makes it different, I blurred the top layer using KPT2's gaussian glow, which is a one-step version of something anyone can do with PS: Dupe over original (no inversion) then gaussian blur top layer and set mode to darken and merge.

Problem here is that you already have to set the top layer to color dodge, so how do you also set it to darken? Maybe by fading in edit to darken, while leaving the layer itself in color dodge mode. Don't know if this would give the same result, but seems like it might...

I liked the way the gaussian glow shaded the edges of the building while keeping the edge lines fine. I will use this again for sure. If anyone figures out how to combine the necessary steps above for those who lack KPT2, I'm sure you'll share the info.

Phyllis

wow, lots of interesting stuff. It's kinda cool seeing your own picture interpreted so many way. Love the pencil sketches and the mirrored one. Too many good ones to mention.

I went for kind of a parchment-y old-world watercolor-ish feel with this one.
