Don't remember exactly what i did but i know i started by desaturating and then turning it into a dual tone image.
After i set my colors and curves in dual tone i returned to RGB, made selections, and created color adjustment layers.
duplicated the background and stylize>glowing edges. applied a luminosity blend at 40% opacity.
something like that anyway
The purple in the steet lines create an interesting illusion of movement that adds to the electric effect. Like a fast-frame shot..
Great work all. This one joins the more surrealistic versions I suppose. It's another Elements2 random walk documented thanks to the history palette.
B: GradientMap Adj layer (violet to orange)
C: MergeVis(A,B). InkOutlines
D: Copy C. DryBrush. PaintEngine. (55% opacity)
E: MergeVisible (C,D). Xero-BadDream. (70% opacity)
F: MergeVisible(C,D,E). Impressionist-Geometric:ChaoticChrome modified. (HardLight, 54%). [ChaoticChrome looks like a great starting point for abstract interpretations. Time to play...]
G: MergeVis(C,D,F - E turned off). Posterize-8.
I was so taken with photobobbie's interpretation that can be seen HERE, I endeavored to recreate the effect. To preserve the effort I wrote an action that can be downloaded HERE.
The first attachment shows the image after I resized it and applied Levels and Hue Saturation for color.
2nd attachment: Substituted textire = Canvas
After running the action I turned on layer D1 ("Thick lines") and erased some of the lines by painting black on the layer mask. I also did some tweaking of the Hue/Sat adjustment layer.
Thanks, Titia, for sharing a bit of your countryside.
