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

I'm submitting a pair of images for this challenge. This is the first. I applied 19 effects to the original to "fix" the photo to my taste. This involved the following steps:
1. select the sky as a layer and render in blending mode 'multiply'
2. Rosenman/diffuse glow filter to the sky
3. fill flash (amount=6) to everything but the sky
4. Rosenman/diffuse glow filter to everything
5. Photo Plugins/soft focus filter
6. select sky/inverse then Lighting effects/omni filter
7. Copied image as Layer 1
8. Desaturated L1 by Enhance/remove color
9. Copied L1 by dragging to icon in layer screen to make L2
10. With L2 as active layer, Image/Adjustments/Invert
11. Set L2 blend mode to ‘color dodge’
12. Applied Minimum filter to L2 to taste
13. ‘Merge down’ L2 to L1 taste
14. Adjusted opacity of L1 to Background to taste to add color
15. Photo Plugins/soft focus filter
16. Red Paw/beautifier filter
17. Xero/caravaggio filter to trees to soften them
18. Pog/blurrinator filter to sky
19. Pog/blurrinator filter to trees

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

This is my second submission. It takes off from my previous image which involved 19 steps to "fix" the original to my taste. This image is my attempt to give it a 'Van Gogh' look. It involved the following 8 filters:
1. Paint Engine filter/custom brush stroke
2. Paint Daubs
3. IP Process/adaptive equalization
4. Lighting effects/omni
5. Photo Plugins/contrast mask
6. Paint Engine filter/custom brush stroke
7. Rosenman/diffuse glow
8. Little Ink Pot/xpose (to sky) to bring out yellow tones

Lots of nice versions, I just played with everything for awhile, went for color and brightness. Combination of built in effects and the Fantastic Machine Paint Engine.

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

Better late than never? I just wanted to try out a new idea and thought I would post =)

Layers in Photoshop

1. New layer
2.Duplicate Background
3.Duplicate Bakground
4. Background

First, I turn off layers 1 and 2 so I can see what I am doing. Layer 3 Find edges, then desaturate, adjust brightness and contrast to get nice line drawing.

Then fill Layer 1 with white. Turn down opacity so I can see layer underneath and used a painterly brush, in this case, 27 pixel spatter brush and added in colour all over the place. Then returned to 100 % opacity and used watercolour filter.

Deleted layer 2.

Then Layer 1 darken and layer 2 overlay to bring in some colour from the original to "fill in the blanks" left by my painting.

Adjusted brightness/contrast to suit, erased a few distracting dark spots by painting over in white, and there it is =)

Hotel in rain

Little pencil-like feeling

1) Conversion to b&w
2) Curves
3) Created reflection (actually copied idea from omeyas)
4) Graphite pen filter

Miss this thread before. Here's an Impressionist Plugin interpretation.

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

that was fun... this is my not so serious attempt because i really don't know what i'm doing... but i mostly just played with light and color and added canvas texture to one and lightning to the other...haha

so many really impressive ones here though...i really enjoyed looking at them.

ETA: sorry...you can't see the animation in the 2nd image with that link...maybe this will work
