PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #148 – Vermont Lake

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).

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.

You'll like the colors in this one, which looks like another good candidate for Trimoon's watercolor technique.

I know we aren't required to give the 'how-to' list, but it's been so long since I did a photo art piece I feel obligated...

I ran a calculations command to create a new document from the red channels (with the gray channel added in with a multiply blending mode, masked, if I remember correctly).
I then copied the new doc and pasted it above the original. Masked out all but the colors in the trees and set layer to 'saturation' to desaturate the rest of the image a bit.

Layered the original pic, a watercolor filtered version set to 44% opacity, a levels layer to lighten it a bit (with the dark areas masked), and then the "new doc" I created on top. Saved that, then flattened the image.

Duplicated the layer, ran diffused glow on the bottom layer, then ran sprayed strokes on the top layer and set it to lighten blending.

bada-bing, done.

Don and Vijayan--interesting effects.

Blues_X--I like the tonality change you gave the image. It sets a mood.

My Trimoon watercolor CD arrived today This is my third attempt. The first two were so I could learn what not to do (you believe me--right )

Steve/Trimoon--Great job on the tutorial!! It's easy to follow and I'm happy with the results. Thanks for all the work you put into sharing with the rest of us.

vermont lake

I started with three images- the original, one with buzzsimplifer- and one done in PM artgallery Hand drawing. I merged the second and third ones using Average, then merged with the original. PSP8

Couldn't upload the image for some reason, so it is here: http://www.fractographics.com/vermontlake.jpg

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #148 – Vermont Lake

Err
I was just messing about with this one, and decided to mirror it, and then mirror it again, having previously increased the canvas size of course.
As usual with this sort of thing I can see things appearing (no I aint been drinking).
I can see what looks like a bottomless totem pole in the middle. (or maybe its ghostly)
