Creative interpretations: Park Bench in Winter

I don't believe I've ever posted a grayscale image for creative interpretation. It will be interesting to see how you creative folks tackle this one.

It was interesting working with a grayscale image rather than a color one.

Started by making a gaussian blur sketch and ran the result through vp oil. Made duplicate layers of the result, ran them through a few of the lucis filters and blended together. Then blended the result with a rejected version made using lucis and nik midnight that was too dark.

Ran a mild Impressionist filter. Turned image into a Duotone and added some dirty grit to the snow.

Cheers

Park bench

Here are two ideas. Used several filters on one and an IR action plus filters. Not being coy, forgot what I actually did. kiska
See the gallery for better view.

Duv, Christine and kiska get gold stars for cleverly reintroducing color as does Cheryl for her usual quality contribution.

This turned out to be an interesting challenge. I'm still doing Impressionist things and this one is a stack of layers combined with layer masks and blend modes.

These are the Impressionist effects I used:
* Background copy to restore a little detail
* Impressionist Charcoal: Default
* Impressionist Conte: Unsmudged Monochrome
* Impressionist (a custom setting based on Conte: Smudged Mono)
* Impressionist Chalk sketch on fine laid paper

See Layers Palette snapshot for more details if you're interested.

gold star

Well, Danny, I guess we'll have to award you a gold star too. VERY nice treatment. kiska
How do you get your thumbnails so big? My 100 kb jpgs are tiny, that's why I retreated to the gallery.

Thanks for your kind words, kiska. I really like what can be done with the Impressionist plugin. It's just unmatched in functionality by anything I've seen, except Corel Painter, which takes artistic talent.

RE: Pic size maneuvering
As a general rule images can be sized ~ 8"x10" at ~ 75 ppi (via Image > Resize command) for posting in threads. If you use Photoshop's File > Save for the Web command and use fairly low quality, they almost always come in well below 100KB.

Note: This would not be the tact if you wanted to print this, but for viewing 'photo-art' on a monitor, it seems to work okay.

Compression tip....

Hi Danny et al...

ACDsee has the best compression for the web bar none. I routinely get 10mb tifs to under 100kb with very little blockiness. If your image contains subtle tones/shades then Photoshops "Save for web" is better but for general web stuff then I have found nothing to beat ACDsee.... Just a thought... Oh and it's the best image viewer/organiser ever... I use a real old version 2.42 but it's so good I have never felt the need to update... I believe the Classic version is a later version than mine and is "free" :-)

park bench

Started with a big buzz, then VP watercolor, and finished up with a slight coat of Paint Engine Arctic.
