I love this effect...just perfect for this subject! And your second pic reminds me of those special lights they use to make things in fish tanks glow.

Wanna write down the steps and settings for that first effect? If you can reproduce it and can take the time?

Phyllis (hope hope hope...)

Umm..yes, I wanna. Can I? Yes, I can. Will it be correct? Probably not. HOWEVER, I know BASICALLY what I did, and I will try to duplicate it again, taking care to document each step - just for you, Phyllis! (well, because I'd like to know too, and maybe somebody else would as well, but it sounded better the other way, huh!)

Ok - near as I am able to duplicate:

Pick a blue and fill a new layer with it. Noise about 7, gaussian, monochromatic. Ocean Ripple, about15 and 9. Diffuse, ansotropic. Sharpen edges 3 or 4 times. Ripple, 100, large. KPT bounded sharpen, bith sliders all the way over. Adjust hue/sat or levels or both to suit. Blend mode to overlay (with original fishy underneath, auto levels).

Foil Fish

Thanks, Phil. I tried your steps and it worked fine...thanks a bunch.

I tried flaming pear's lacquer filter on fish #1 and raised detail, bulge, gradient, and sparkle above 80% and got a molded foil effect...then softened it partially with aniso-diffuse.

I like my previous foil fish effect better, but this one seems more appropriate for a fish. I call it sparkle fish. Done with KPT5 intensity filter.

Spot the mistake!

See if you can spot the "deliberate" mistake in the previous photo!

Frank,

Real nice, I like it. The mistake is you mirrored the eye of the angel fish.
