1. Duplicated Layer
2. Applied Threshold adjustment to duplicated layer to simplify image
3. Erase out sections to further simplify
4. Duplicated original layer. Called it Color
5. Applied Posterize and Cutout filter to simplify COLOR layer
6. Applied a hue/saturation adjustment to alter colors
7. Changed mode to screen to allow threshold layer to show through.
8. Added text

Brilliant interpretation. Ticketmaster should hire you to craft posters. Really.

Blush, Thanks Danny. Just exploring some new techniques that worked out quite well for this.

Carlos Santana

T., the threshold thing works great. I think you mastered it. Trying new techniques is often discouraging; but in this case...YOU WON!

The one above by LQQQKER is great as well. I love the color interaction with the senses. The make one identify with the times and seasons of the past in music.

Good job.

Janet

Image layer1- blank layer2 on top - fill with yellow (my choice)- difference clouds twice -blend hard light - merge down - filter emboss - blend dodge. Image level adj - equalize. Image selective color - neutrals to black - filter find edges- image adj increase contrast. Merge both layers 1 and 2.

great stuff everyone!!!

@T Paul: that would be a really great poster or ticket (or both)...

-----
the one to the left - 2 copies, ormente fluorizer on the top one and blend-screen; copy merged into a new layer, make one copy of that layer, optiverve virtual photographer (bronze) on the top one, blend-if to get rid of the black parts (only thing that stays are the "bronze" highlights)

the one to the right - 2 copies, cutout on the bottom one, and blend-linearlight on the top one
(more details are visible in the full size version...)

I created this by duplicating the background
Gradient adjustment layer: Blend If to suit
Duplicated background again
Gradient adjustment with different color values
Pasted into first: Blend If to suit

Cheers
Dave
