PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #150 – Wine and Rose

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?

See below.

PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #150 – Wine and Rose

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.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Here's a great image to work with, taken by Sue Beatrice who graciously granted permission to use it.

Thanks to all who held down the fort during my hiatus. I'll post a couple more a little later. Off to play "Go Fish" with my kids.

LEGAL VERBIAGE
Sue Beatrice retains the U.S. and international copyright © not only for the original image, but also for any photo-art versions of it. Unauthorized distribution or use of this image without permission are prohibited.

FIRST MINI-CHALLENGE -or- NEW TO PHOTO-ART?

New guidelines (subject to fine tuning):
* For each mini-challenge, post up to two (2) interpretations with attached images of your interpretation(s). ## SEE BELOW.

* For each include enough step-by-step detail to give someone a reasonable chance to recreate (or approximate) your results. That way all of us can learn from each other. Obviously it’s impossible to explain things like “individual brush strokes,” but do include such details as filters used, plugins used, blend mode detail, etc.

* Preferred format:
1)
2)
3)
etc.

on individual steps vs. writing it out in paragraphs. Step-by-step is easier for newbies to follow.

* If you used a technique or tutorial described elsewhere, include a link to it if possible.

* You may include an additional post with a screenshot of your Layers Palette if that’s easier than writing out the details.

* If you used one or more Photoshop actions you crafted and you would like to share them, .zip the action set and attach in an additional post or refer to the download site with the applicable action set name(s).

Focus on quality, not quantity – and sharing your techniques. Unique and/or creative writeups will be preserved and noted in the "Best of Photo-art" forum.

In addition...
* Questions about technical matters or method clarification are welcome.

* Compliment works you truly admire. Don't feel compelled to comment on (or feel guilty about not commenting on) every single image.

## If you would like to do more interpretations, here’s how to do that:
- Post them at a public site, such as www.pbase.com and include as many links IN A SINGLE POST as you would like.
- If you create subsequent versions and want to include them, you can edit your own posts to add/change/delete links to outside galleries. It's not necessary to add additional posts to the thread for each link to a gallery site.

This is a beautiful image.

Danny--is this the one that was on dpreview with an awesome impressionist pencil sketch effect that I can't seem to duplicate?

Don--Interesting choice of effects. The all metal look does give it an elegant appearance.

I went with impressionist layers blended together. I was playing around hoping that impressionist would behave well in actions--but it's even worse than virtual painter. Oh well, I guess I should have to do a little work on some images. I stayed with watercolor and paint effects for this. I couldn't find the edge/frame actions Don's been using that I like so well, so I tried to fake it

Dream Rose

Lovely images! I selected the rose alone: cropped, smudged, and framed.

Anna:

Isolating the rose was a very effective approach. I like the way you "colored outside the lines."

- - - - -
On mine, here's the layer stack (top to bottom):

* Levels adjustment layer (to suit)
* Find Edges filter applied to the original background. Darken
* Impressionist filter applied to original background; settings: Charcoalefault. Normal
* Background (off)
