Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

and Ro, i like yours a lot. such a clean look.

ok, so had to do another. i tend to run in spurts. this is from another filter forge filter i did. this one was all about tones and height/relief.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

another gorgeous image!

My soft watercolor wash.

I discovered that using the Lens Blur filter in PS with the blur setting all the way up including some noise - set that (either fade the effect or having run the filter on a duplicate background layer) to darken leaves you very easily with a watercolor wash feel.

I just played around with impressionist between those two layers to make the details feel more organic.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

These are all so good.

Craig, I especially like your last one. You have effectively lit up the alley as though there was a street lamp there out of view. Excellent.

Klautt, some come from unrestricted stock photos such as stock exchange, flikker, etc. Just depends on if the poster has copy righted or not. Some do, some don't. Many of the low res versions have no usage restrictions.
