I used Mystical Lighting for a mist effect, then a motion blur to soften the forground. Some curve adjustment layers to lighten and darken areas, and then a hue/sat layer. I added an edge, and some texture. I know I forgot some steps.

cathy,

nice color and texture mix

re the giclee, ok, thanks. so it is printed first in a more or less normal inkjet manner and then treated separately. cool

so, if i wanted something like this done to a print of my own, i would contact you?

Craig

Nice job Steve.

Craig: Danny Raphael has a thread going on.."Photo art, Fine Art, Printing, Canvas, Mounting, Stretching". It has some sites that you might be interested in.

Hi Mal,

From over here it's hard to believe that anything can be that green.

I saw your picture as an old fashioned sepia/black and white photo.

To do this I first used two Hue/Saturation Layers to convert to Black and White. I then Selected the sky and applied a Curves Adjustment Layer to it to bring out the clouds. This was followed by another Curves Layer with a Radial Gradient to emphasise the tree.

I then created a neutral gray Layer in Overlay mode to use for my dodging and burning.

I blured the landscape beyond the ridge to make the foreground stand out more and added a Colorfill Layer to give a warmer "Sepia" tone to the image.

Finally I added a Copy Layer in Luminosity Mode to add a bit of sharpness.

I toyed with adding a few lightning bolts in the left background but somehow they didn't seem to work so I gave up on that idea.

Hope you like the result.

Regards

Con

Con, that came out real good. Great stuff!
You're right, lightning wouldn't combine with the 'mood' of the image.

Thanks Craig...I might go back and try the tiger again.

Nice work Con. It has a very moody atmosphere.

I though I would try a montage. I used the threshold to make the picture look like an ink drawing, and then used several photos and blending modes to make the montage.

Thanks everyone for your marvellous contributions to this thread, you've inspired me to try a watercolor rendition. I just used Filter>Artistic>Dry Brush then fiddled about with Shadows/Highlights (twice), saturated the reds and yellows a little and tweaked the Levels.
