Re: Creative Interpretations - Lamp post

Lovely image to start with, Swampy!

Did some Color Range selections to emphasize the beautiful colors, some Notepaper layering, Diffuse Glow, Extrude, Crystallize, with some masking.

Nice, JCS! Very subtile on the flowers and detail on the post.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Lamp post

My goal was to emphasize the power of the man made post vis the delicate flowers.

I reduced the saturation of the cyans in the post to make it more "industrial" looking.

Lovely photo to work with. Reminds me of Savannah. Thanks Swampy.
Mainly used watercolors in Painter after simplifying using KPT Pyramid Paint. Used surface effects of Paper and brush strokes.
