Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

Tired of painting kitties, kids, flowers and that kind of stuff. Here's one for you that might be fun. You might also get some practice in color correction and fixing blown out areas with no color. :-)

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

Yet another challenging image... I chose to correct distortion, perspective and tilt, then played with many of the standard filters of PSE5 to get this mood... That was real fun!

Swampy, didn't anyone ever tell you to stay out of those alleys?

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

I thought about going the grunge watercolor look, but I didn't quite get there. Used Xero's Abstractor and Carivagio filters for the wc converstion for the most part.

Looks like everyone is having fun. Go away for an hour and come back and there are 4 great renderings.

LOL, Steve. Even though I'm a country girl, I could live with this alley in my back yard.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

I wanted to try this as an oil painting in Painter. This is way out of my "typiclal" painting style, but I wasn't displeased LOL

Shades of Monet's style Swampy. I like the result you achieved.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Italian Alley

Another wonderful image to play with. Many thanks, Swampy.

As the original is already an "arty" shot, I just tried to enhance it a little further.
