Just playing around w/ Painter8. Cloned with different brushes on separate layers then composited in Elements2. Nothing to get excited over compared to the PStewart efforts from 12-30-2002. I like Neve's 'recent' version too.

-Mark

Layers (bottom to top):

A: WaterColorRunCloner
B: WaterColorWashCloner (normal, 50%)
C: ChalkCloner (soft light 70%)
D: FlatImpastoCloner (linear light 25% with a bit of layer masking)
E: Copy D. Highpass 1. (linear light 100% with a bit more layer masking)

I like some of the painted look renderings, but some seem a bit over done. I thought Blacknight's, and pstewart's first edition, kept the detail, but did give it an arty look. Although I have to say pstewart's second offering was very striking. Pam had a good thing going, but the light flowers on the right are a little too washed out, but the rest is very delicate and pretty.

The thing that drew me to this photo was the juxtaposition of the dark photo with subtile touches of color. I seldom see such a variety of flowers shot in such a "dark" setting.

In my version, I've attempted to keep the ambiance of that setting, and make it appear as if the white flowers on the right were the source of the light without using a gradient to cast the light gently over the other flowers.

PhotoShop CS

1. Duplicate the background (Normal Blending Mode) and ran a High Pass so that just the tip edges of the flowers showed colors.

2. Did a Levels adjustment on the Highpass layer and really clipped the blacks and whites in toward gray. (Normal at 100 %). This layer should always be the top most (first) in your layer palette. (It is needed to maintain the colors in the highpass)

3 Made another copy of the background (Normal Blending) and placed it above the Highpass layer at 10% opacity (to bring back the color and detail)

4 Ran a gentle lighting effects on this new layer with white as high (36) on the background copy channel. Set the center of light in the center of the photo with the light source passing over the white flowers at a slight angle.

5. I then created two new layers from the lighting effects layer. First was luminosity (Option+command+~ on the Mac) and the second was the same luminosity selection reversed. The light selection set to Blend mode Luminosity with a 10% opacity and below that the inverse set to Normal with an opacity of 11%.

I think I covered everything... :-)
