Yep,

That's a New York taxi.

Catia

Sorry, done in PS7. Duped background, motion blurred, and used a layer mask to paint the taxi back in. Hey, you guys knew that anyway....

I've never been to New York, but it's certainly a contrast to where I live. I think the tallest building here is 3 stories.

Just to satisfy myself I could do something without impressionist--I think I'm having withdrawals.

3 dups of the background.

1. Lowest layer: lightened the image and ran fresco
2. middle layer: Ran buzz pure color, faded it somewhat and then ran the buzz simplifier. St to overlay at 75%
3. Top layer is just a dup of the original in pin light mode--it gave back a little detail.
4. Topped with a pattern fill layer in soft light for texture.

Danny:
Thanks for coming along with this image just in time. I have just aquired Photoartmaster (PAM) Gold 1.5. This is the first attempt and coinsides with the first lesson. Not great and alot more to learn but I believe that PS and PAM will work together nicely.

Oh CherylH I really like your fresco its a lot better then the filter out of PS really nice.

Thanks
Bob

Catia - That's exactly how fast they go.
Cheryl - I like the color andthe texture of your version.
Bob - I love that sketchy - acrylic style you've rendered.

Danny - great picture.


Working from bottom to top:
1. Note paper blend mode- darken.
2. Note paper blend mode- screen.
3.Trace contour, desaturated, blend mode- vivid light.
4.Original's copy set to hard light to bring the colors back. Flattened and adjusted color to my satisfaction.

Re: Creative interpretations: New York Taxis

Mostly just foolin' around with this one.

Problem is, in New York if it's raining you can never find a taxi.
