PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #143 – San Marco

Guidelines? Give 'em a rest!

Since I'm going on vacation and won't be back for a week, let's give providing the detailed steps a vacation, too. As a reward for so many fine writeups so far the how-to detail will be optional for this mini-challenge.

Still, limit your submissions to no more than two (2).

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #143 – San Marco

Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category until the next major challenge is posted here.

The base image can be downloaded by clicking the link below the legal verbiage.

There's a lot of detail, but the possibilities look promising.

Vijayan--I like the warm color tone you gave the buildings.

Don--Your action was a winner on this one. Looks great.

I started with the 4th buzz pro tutorial found here http://www.dynamicdesign.biz/gallery/gallery12.htm

Changes made were:
1. On the ink stack, I used 100 for the simplifier and chose brightness and contrast by eye.
2. Used soft light for the blending mode on the chrome layer
3. Used overlay rather than screen on the merged layer
4. Ignored the last 3 steps
5. Added a texture.

Beautiful, Cheryl.
Boy, this is exactly the type of photo I designed my Cobblestone for. I have some kitchen tins that look just like this.

Bill--I really like that cobblestone. I found your directions for it somewhere and played with it on a few of my own photos--it's great!

It sure would be nice if it's part of the new action pack. (Danny--hint, hint-no pressure )

Thanks, Cheryl. Yes, it is already in the set. So begin digging out the Pastel Light 118 brush. I like it best. In fact at one time I had the action load the brush for you, but then realized that everytime I ran the action, it and all the other Natural Brushes 2 got loaded. Had about 15 copies installed!
Best regards, Bill

great colors and I like every admission
cheryl, I should buy the buzz filter. Every admission looks good with it!

I tried a dark version myself, it's almost a pity for the beautiful image!

San Marco

I liked everyone's rendition of this one, and especially liked photomauler's, Cheryl's, and Gina's use of color. I'm just a newbie, but had fun playing with this one. I think I played too much though! The file was too large and really had to be cut down in size to send it, so this looks pretty sad.
