Re: Puerto Vallarta

Like Palms, and Patricia Kay, I had to have a play with all those wonderful colors.

I went for the crop to focus in on those wonderful plates.

I painted the "stuff" in Painter then brought over to PS to add the detail, texture and blending.

Re: Puerto Vallarta

Great work everyone!

The vivid colors are really what attracted me to the kiosks. Veritable kaleidoscopes. While there may be as many as 100 along the walking path on that island, unfortunately, most of them handle the same merchandise - it's difficult to find unique things but sometimes I'd get lucky. Tho, I have to admit that I now have 22 Puerto Vallarta ball caps - I'm a sucker for new ball caps.

Here are 2 more pic's of the kiosks in the same area. I had to crop a lot to get them the size to send. On the first pic below, look at the left hand side at the masks - they are cloth masks that many of the Mexican wrestlers wear. Gotta be very stuffy.

I'll post a couple of Iguana pics later - they are all over the place - including in the trees above the kiosks.

Regards

Bob Mc

Last of the pictures

Iguanas - in the trees above the walkway - careful when you look up!

Others seen were more colorful - these are about 3-4 feet long

Re: Puerto Vallarta

Hi Bob...

Great pix; thanks for sharing them.

Dusted off an old PS action, a modification of Mike Finn's watercolor freebee. (google: Mike Finn actions)

Probably a little less detail would have been better, but I liked the general result.

Re: Puerto Vallarta

Danny,
Nice effect and thank you for reminding us of Mike Finn and his great actions.

Haven't heard from Mike for a while but his site is still there.

http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

Mike's action that I always thought was cool yet wild is Popartist and along with that action is one called Popartist Adjustment.

Here's that effect(s) on one of the shopping pictures. It/they really bring out the bright vivid colors.

The first pic uses popartist alone; the second add the popartist adjustment action as well.

Hope that you can easily see the color differences between the two

Regards
Bob

Re: Puerto Vallarta

Bob reading about popartist again reminded me of a technique that was about a while ago (not mine)
run popartist, go to history and click on the anisotropic layer then run the action velvia ( from atncentral ) use usm if wanted ( i suppose it is like the illustrated actions about now ) works well on landscapes etc
