These are all so wonderful! I don't know if I can comment on them all! But there are a couple that are outstanding!

Phyllis, how did you achieve that wonderful color gradient in your first one?

Jerry, you're ghost town is absolutely incredible. Neat idea, and I love the presentation!

I really like Splat, I use it a lot for texturizing, nothing better in my book and I liek the frames too, you also have the opportunity to make your own frames from within photoshop and save them in the splat format.

Thanks Folks for commenting on the ole Ghost Town.. It was really fun to work on..

Amanda.. I worked on that version in two seatings of approx. 2 hours each.. It was a lot of trial and error to find things that looked right.. My wife kept saying "try this" or "try that" till it looked like something.. Then she said quit playing and go do some yard work.. Go Figure.. She dosn't understand that this photoart is important stuff..

Jerry, ghost town is great idea and well-executed!

Ken, nice use of brushes...looks great!

Tyeise, to get the gradient I used a circular rainbow gradient on a separate layer set to color mode and faded opacity a bit. Also painted with large brush set to color mode to accent different areas with the colors I wanted.

Beautiful work, folks. BillC, I love your's!

I'm new to converting to black and white so I thought I would practice on this using curves adjustment layers and masks. I wanted to make the grass soft. And I thought the tree in the left corner was distracting. And I wanted to keep the details of the wagon prominent without any sharpening. I also wanted to maximize the tonal range without looking too bleak.

I would really appreciate any constructive ideas!

Bill

Bill, great job. Looks like a high quality b/w photo that you might find in a top photographer's collection.

That's very kind of you, Phyllis. The light bulb came on during the last week or so that it's not what method you use to convert to B&W--channel mixer, greyscale, desaturate--it's what you do with it afterwards. Just like a color image, different parts need different strokes. Thanks.
