I'll bet it is, Swampy...and you've got to hear it sung to really appreciate it.

Re: Creative Interpretations - A Chief in the Maki

OK, I did 'em so I might just as well post 'em

Both are created with actions along with a number of tweaks to various layers

The left one is done with one of Danny R's actions called Art - Watercolor 24 djr
On the right is a commercial action that creates a large number of layers for adjusting/refining

Both I think, create nice watercolor effects - Hope you agree

Phew, maybe my last postings for the year.

Regards and Happy New Year to all

Bob Mc

Re: Creative Interpretations - A Chief in the Maki

OK, this is my first try at this, so please be gentle

I didn't try anything very original, just played around with PS filters and different layers.

Re: Creative Interpretations - A Chief in the Maki

Definitely some cool renditions since I last posted. Some of you may already know that I've been on a quest to emulate those metallic magazine cover captures (monochromatic) that I've recently been seeing in the newstands (mainly on Innographx, but also DPReview's site). Think I'm getting close, but the closer I get, the more convoluted the process becomes. Sorry, just too convoluted for me to really explain, but I basically mask the lights from the darks an do a mirror finish on the darks (require any type of distortion method you like), and a metallic finish on the ligher areas.

Re: Creative Interpretations - A Chief in the Maki

I love the picture, and everybody's interpretations of it.

For mine, I increased saturation and contrast. Darkened the edges of the foreground, and used impressionist on the background.

Enjoy!
