Creative interpretations: Arizona Mission

Ran across this the other day and thought it had great potential.

Let's see what you can do with this one.

This is a great photo.

I used the same steps I used in mini-challenge 98 (lighthouse), but played with the presets.

Thanks for the image Danny. Cheryl I really liked your impressionist style. SVSG your image was really interesting I like your dark tones that you have given images. I have tried for between the two of you in style.
The following was done:
1. Nik polarizer and brilliance & warmth
2. Buzzed
3. Embossed
4. Curves
5 Texture sandstone
Thanks
Bob

svsg--nice work. I like how the mission tower looks lit from within.

Bob--the soft sandstone texture is a nice compliment to the coolness of the sky and the warm tones of the mission.

Don--great surreal effect. I like the slightly melted look of the building--it suits the old architecture (sp?).

Hi everyone,


very nice picture and one that inspires some very wild renditions.

I downloaded it because I liked it so much but couldn't get anything decent out of it till tonight.

Cheryl : your getting into a style of your own . I like the different colourblotches-tones very much. Just a pic that deserves this treatment.

svsg : just as I would picture this building in a glorius sunset. Nice

Bob : for whom the bell tolls!!! Lovely that light from into the tower and the dark ominous sky.

Don : Your's seems to be in front of a big explosion. The laquer always delivers hé

mine is a bit hot too:

I used a layer with colourworks-heat filter
a layer wher I selected only the building
a routine sketch layer with colorize hue saturation to make it warmer and eliminate white-fad el white /softlight
a background dupe with impressionist watercolor and PE waterpaper preset /softlight
a dupe with buzz-edges usm and eliminate white-fade /multiply
layer with texture

done

gina

for mine. I did add a texture at the end.

I ran across the image on my hard-drive that I downloaded and made awhile ago. Guess I'll post it now, even though I don't remember what I did.

Re: Creative interpretations: Arizona Mission

Sorry lost count of all the silly things I did with this one.
I'm having a surreal moment I think.
