thanks jch, it sure is and I've only scratched the surface from that plug-in.
I really have Cheryl to thank for bringing and keeping it under our attention!

Tracks I thought lent itself to a abstract so this is my try. I got the idea from a tutorial at:
http://www.zeroplace.com/photoshop/d...italburst.html

The only real changes are the image was changed to black and white and I used a gradient. I call it "Sunset over the Tracks".

By the way if anyone know how to make a reflected gradient using your own foreground and background colors or know of a tutorial I would greatly appreciate any help. If you need more clarification of what I said please email me.

Thanks
Bob

That's very creative. Reminds me of a snap of some of the footage from 2001, A Space Odyssey. Appreciate the link to the tutorial.

Margaret...

A+ in the "stretching the boundaries" dept, too. Glad to see two interpretations that really bend the norm.

Nice job, really different I like it. Margaret, I know how the center is made (I Hope) with the elliptical marquee tool, but how do you do an "X". Thank for a tip if you don't mind.

Hi Bob, I went back to see what I did and couldn't remember but luckily, I had saved the file with all the layers in it!

It was quite simple really.

1. make a new layer and fill it with a dark pinkish color, set the blending mode to color.

2. using the polygonal lasso tool, make a triangle shaped selection over the lower right half of the layer.

3. choose "invert" under the Image menu (it's in one of the sub-menus). This turn the lower right a kind of bluish-green

4. make another new layer and fill it with a rich green set the blending mode to difference

5. using the polygonal lasso tool again, make a triangle shaped selection over the lower left half of the layer.

6. choose "invert" again

7. make an oval selection over the layer you made in step 4 and then choose "invert" again

8. keeping the same selection outline as step 7, make the layer from step 1 the active layer and invert again.

Hope this makes sense. I've attached an image showing the layers.

Margaret

Thank you for your replying, I got it now. Very neat concept, I will try it. It was especially nice of you to include the screen print. That was as the saying goes one picure is worth a thousand words.
Well again thanks another door has openned.
Bob

tracks

This one started with paint engine's poster #7, then paint engine's arctic filter. Softened.

I gave it a mat and a frame and it just goes to show that anything when presented properly can pass for art.
