Days of Wine & Roses

My approach was simple. It made me think of the movie "The Day of Wine & Roses" so I dupe the layer, desatruated it and painted the wine and rose back in. Nothing fancy just the way I saw it.

Hi Peter:

Thanks for the kind words. It was a great pic with which to work.

The best way to get into photo-art is to "just jump in."

Beware... Sometimes an action will work great on one pic and look lously on another, so keep experimenting. Don't be bashful about posting your creations, even the early ones. That's how all of us started.

Ronicox:

I've been admiring your creativity in various threads. Well done on this one in particular. You definitely have the touch.

Glad both of you found our little playground. Welcome and keep having fun.

~Danny~

This is my first mini-challenge. The photo is so lovely I couldn't resist.

Photoshop
lightened contrast

Emboss light inverse
Selected color tool
Unsharp mask

Real-Draw Pro
Gaussian sharpen

I continue to try to attach my file but the message says it's not a valid gif or jpg. Anyone know why I'm having this problem.

Blu,

Is your jpg file 100K or smaller? That is the post limit on this site. Use the Save for Web item on the file menu and set the file size to 100K.

Very nice version BTW.

Hey, Blu:

Welcome.

Glad to see you thought the "list of tutorials" was helpful and that you posted one of your creations, here. Nicely done.

RE: Real-Draw Pro
I've not heard of that program. I'll do a little Google searching to find out more. Thanks for sharing the info on how you did it.

Hope to see more of your works in the future.

~Danny~

Thanks Danny! I'm new to Real-Draw also..working with a trial version at the moment. It has a couple of really nice features and is reasonably prices...around $50 I think.

Thanks to you also Catia! The pic is under 100k but I will try your save for the web tip and see if that somehow makes a difference.

This site will tell you all about Real-Draw and there's a free trial download.

I put this here although it's off topic to save you a search.

Wine and rose[s]

Sorry... I got carried away on the first image, saved it and immediately started work on the second. When I went back to the first I couldn't remember the exact filters I used.

I think I cut out the rose and glass and ran fresco on the background. There were some mild gausian blur on both layers. Then underpainting with a canvas texture.

The second is the one that made me lose track of the steps. I've been working on it off and on for a few days.

First I enlarged the canvas to the right.
I cut out the rose, Rotated, flipped horizontal, free transform to enlarge it a bit. Blurred the droplets.
Filter> spherize, 20%.
Selected slice of the glass on the left, copy, flip horiz, paste.

New layer with mask of glass. Painted out where I wanted the rose to show.

On BG copy cloned the counter.

On new layer I put in some highlights and tried to make it look like the liquid was actually up against the rose. [not to successfully but looked better when blurred]

Filter>grain [low]
Filter>Gausian blur [low]

That's about it but I do have a tip I picked up on a tutorial the other day. When working with layer masks if you want to work on the mask itself you don't need to go to channels to do it. You can do it on the fly by pressing option [alt on PC] and click on the mask icon.

Cheers... Kent

This was a lot of fun! And an lot quicker than the restoration challenges I usually do!

1)Liquify filter, using different brush sizes on different parts of picture
2)Crystalize filter, using setting a setting of 10
3)Duplicate original, use Crosshatch filter at 9,9,1
4)Add layer mask on top layer (Liquifed/Crystallized) and painted back in a few edges and details from crosshatched layer.
5)Smudged with different sized brushes on Liquified/Crystallized layer to make it look like an oil painting.
6)Curves AL to bring up highlights and darken shadows.

Thanks for letting me play!
