Look like a very interesting technique.
==> Tell us the best you can the steps you used so others can "derail" their own train.
Very creative. Thank you for joining us.
I like it! One thing I thought about the original picture was that it lacked motion. Though you call it derailed, for me, it is a train that is pulling a heavy load. Almost as though the train is alive and struggling down the track. Very cool!
Danny very sorry, I thought it was simple to every one to recognize the effects, because this is very usual and easy to blend it . and many of our members were handled it very cleverly.
In my duplicate layer I simply used >Filter>Distort>Pinch -26. and again Filter>Artistic>Cutout (I often used to play with iit ) It is a kind of laizy and easy way of work....
Danny many thanks.
And t_crisp,this is very fantastic observation and you hooked it into your way and to your taste. very interesting. There is the duity of Art done the job creatively and eastheticaly....
and I like the texture and treatments in your work and it is very interesting..
thank you very much...
Inspired by Danny's Find Edges technique (see http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...&threadid=6358) I tried the following
1) Dupe Background
2) Desaturate background copy
3) Filter>Stylise>Find Edges
4) Used Levels to increase contrast
5) Set Opacity to 50%
6) Merged Layers
7) Adjusted Levels
8) Adjusted saturation
9) Duped layer then removed everything except the engine
10) Used Blur>Motion Blur to taste
11) Added some smoke on a blank layer
12) Made a second blank layer and filled it with white then temprarily set the Opacity to about 50% so I could see the picture underneath
13) Used the Lassoo tool to draw an irregular shape around the engine, including a little of the scenery (set feather to 50px)
14) Reset the Opacity on the white layer back to 100%
Thought I'd try this on the train...I'm not sure I like it though. The steps are the same as the flower on the show & tell forum:
1. duplicate the image and make 3 copies of the BG layer.
Starting from the layer just above the BG:
First layer: Filter>Sketch>Waterpaper
Next layer: Filter>Artistic>Smudge Stick
set those 2 layers to soft light
Top Layer: Filter>artistic>cutout
Set this layer to luminosity and opacity to around 75% to taste.
Levels adjustment layer to taste.
Merge all layers except the BG layer.
Layer mask on the merged layers and paint lightly to bring out a little detail.
g o o d MORNING TRAIN......
Very good submissions so far and Iam with another one. This time also with Filter>Distort>Spherize>Horizontal and adjusted chroma levels in Levels by selecting red,green and blue seperately.
and did edit>transfom>flip horizontal.
E.B, very clever use of filters and a good result also. very nice...
Thank you everybody..
Based on a question I researched and answered at DPReview, here's an easy technique for a duotone/tritone look ala "Powertones" (also very easy to record as an action):
1. Image mode> greyscale
2. Image mode> duotone
3. Load one of the preloaded duotones or tritones (forget which one I used here)
4. Select all, Copy
5. On the history palette, select yur color original
6. Paste to a new layer
7. Set the blend mode to Hue and adjust opacity if desired.
