PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #147 – Freemont Bridge, Portland, OR

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 #147 – Freemont Bridge

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.

From June 1976 through March 1985 I crossed this bridge that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon twice a day to and from work. It took about three years to build and I recall being facinated by the construction techniques.

Before the bridge offically opened the City of Portland hosted a HUGE street party on the upper deck. It was a hoot.

I tried the soft sketch on this on. It seems to have brought out the detail under the bridge.

That's a fine photo, Danny. And some beautiful sketches. Very well done. I dug up the architect's original rendering buried in a time capsule under the bridge:

p.s. just testing my Cobblestone technique

Further testing my 10 version black and white, I combined parts of the double red and the channel mixer results using the history brush. I then added some tint from one of the standard color swatches and some film grain to the underside of the bridge.

This one looks a bit like bill M's first(but just a bit) because his is much more painterly. Mine is fully ps-generated, not a shred of manual help .

tried some custom filters on this

Bridge my way

Well, I simplified this one then changed into a pencil sketch on a layer and painted with painted daubs on another. I used texture and KPT noise for the background layer. I color corrected and changed it a bit with variations. Overall, I think it came out a clean painting. Cathy
