Patricia--another winner. I think that technique works better for you than it does for me.

Kiska--painter 8 kicks my butt. I'm going to have to site down and try harder when vacation starts.

Cheryl- I've just had one lesson in basic Painter from Eclectic (via Danny). This could be difficult. Step up and maybe we can muddle thru a little bit.

Re: Creative interpretations: Golden Gate Bridge

going through some old threads here tonight. thought i'd do this one up a bit. simple colored pencil. these are easy to do in Paint Shop Pro. make a duplicate of your background, then use the 'find all edges' tool in the effects menu on this layer. set this layer to a new layer group and add a contrast/brightness adjustment layer to the group over the black and white sketch. set that to taste, darkening the lines of the b&w. set the layer to luminance, et voila'!

Dave,

I just love this rendition. Over the top it is! Thanks for sharing it.

By the way I am going to S.F. on the 13th for 5 days. It'll be my 4th or 5th time there. It's a great city, I think.

Over and out,
Gunner Holmes

Well, I finally managed to come up with something for this great landmark. I did a lot of plain enhancement. Then I used Tonemapping a might. After which I copied it, made a new document and after pasting it in twice I inverted one of them. After that it was a matter of using the regular filter in CS2. Topped off with the "Rainy Day" action by Panos.
