Re: Lovers in Paris

Lyle, smart. Wouldn't have thought the people would have as much detail as they do. Very nice

Re: Lovers in Paris

Very interesting result, Lyle. What program/plug-in did you use?
I used Impressionsit for mine.

Re: Lovers in Paris

Thanks for the comments Veronica/Sylvia. I used Autotrace for the vector simplication Sylvia (that's after a few Contrast enhancments and G'MIC Pen play to the original that is). I then ported the vector result (SVG file) into GIMP for some additional work cleanup (for transparancy removal mainly). Cool thing about vectors are they are scaleable; hence the bigger result (the details you commented about Veronica).

Re: Lovers in Paris

I used the method outlined by Lyle.
Large version:
http://miningart.zonerama.com/RTP/lp-MA2

The second version was made from my first. Turned into a 2 bit image, assigned sRGB, used texture-blend for interest, made a focal point, gradient fill for duo-tone effect.

Re: Lovers in Paris

John & Lyle, Your work is great. I like the simplified vector-look. But it just seems so, so, techie to me. I did a vector illustration once, but it was the kind where you submitted the image and it was done on their site. So, I didn't really "do" anything. But I'll keep my mind open.

Sylvia, I also have Impressionist filter but have never, no way gotten the beautiful result that you did.

So, let's see, that was a really wonderful shot, Sylvia. I tried to get a bit more colorful than usual. I had an evening in Paris kind of thing going on in my mind; I love it when the setting sun turns everything golden as it goes down. So - ran Kyoto Color once for the sky color and then again for the lower half. Masked the bottom out of one, voila, Evening in Paris. Kind of reminded me of an old postcard, Kodachrome, look,no?

Re: Lovers in Paris

I do like this picture too...
It's funny, whenever I go on that bridge, there's always a bunch of people listening to or playing music, having a picnic, drinking wine, etc.
It's a really friendly bridge
