Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

So far I like what JB has done the best.

I myself don't do much as far as "fantasy" or "artistic" impressions of my work, I use my photoshop skills to bring out my vision that I had in mind when I created the photograph.

And on occasion you have things that don't always behave, such as columns that lean at different angles, or an imperfect section of a column such as the left one in this image, and so I use my skills to bring out the subject, correct distractions but keep it as a "photograph" more then some new art that took a different direction.

I see that many here have some very good artistic skills and have learned to bring them to light with their Photoshop skills.

Here is my version of this photo.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #61 – Samantha

OK, here is my Samantha entry. You should see me resurrecting a lot of old mini-challenges over the next few months.

Anyway, this image was done the old fashioned manual way by using the brush, smudge, dodge, and burn tools. Some soft focus and other blurring was employed but with a mask added to reexpose the sharper areas of the face. The background was hand built. A few filters were used (thanks to Filter Forge and some styles from my Photoshop WOW book) to add some texture to the image but they do not show up due to the size limitation and jpg compression.

Here is a nice soft variation of my previous image. The image was run through the ColorSketch plugin for Filter Forge.
