I like this kind of image...

...Evokes dreams of faraway places and all that stuff with just a hint of romance :-)

This is my first post here so errors and mistakes excepted, here's my interpretation. Done with Easy_Draw action and a sandstone texture at the end.

Easy Draw

That looks really good - could you explain a bit more about easy-draw I haven't come across this before.

Easy-Draw is one of MANY Mike Finn created actions, many of which are available for no charge.

Personally I believe Mike creates the most creative, innovative photo-art actions on the planet. Really.

Check 'em out here:

Rotated slightly, cloned out vertical wire, adjusted perspective and cropped. Ran through neat image to remove some of the artifacting. Ran Screen Mask Shadow Adjust action twice to bring out more of alley. Then ran Pixel Painter. Finished up with Sandstone texture.

Mike, always nice to see your interpretations. Very nice result. I had a bit of trouble getting this result down to 100K at reasonable quality. I probably should have used a link like you did.

Very nice interpretation. Textures bring out the essence.

I've always liked Photobrush. It's "not the same effects as Photoshop" can be put to creative use, like you've done here.

Thanks Danny

for the comment and the link to Mike's site. I'm at work at the moment but will look at it properly when I get home. Always like to try new techniques and software.

As for PhotoBrush - if only it was a PS plugin - it's lack of layers is the biggest drawback to using it.

Thanks Danny....

...and Xaran for the kind words. It seems like a nice place around here.

Catia..... The 100k limit on posting sure had me fooled :-)
