Interesting interpretations so far.

I've been playing with Flora's tutorial on "blend if". I had not thought to use any of those things on this image at first but since it was on my mind... what the heck.

Duped the layer and desaturated then played with the "blend if" sliders in all colors and gray 'til I liked the look. Then ran:

Filter> artistic> fresco

It looked pretty good so I started playing with opacities. Used restrained oval selection tool and deleted the interior. Duped bg again below that and ran:

Filter> distort> spherize [about 20%]

Worked on a layer above the punched out one with white airbrush to simulate a little reflection from the sun.

Selected sphere again and went to cutout layer... added layer mask. This takes out the previous fresco effect. Airbrushed with white with various opacities in spots I wanted the effect to come back.

MAUDLIN COMMENT// I have learned so much from all you people. Everyone around has a spirit of fun and adventure. The sharing of techniques to those of us just learning is like no place I have seen before. //END MAUDLIN COMMENT

Thanks

Wonderful image -- makes me want to be there!

Variety of renditions -- lovely effects, creative ideas -- Mal, Kiska, JustChecking, Duv, Punch -- it's fun to see each person's emphasis. Punch -- like your use of Spherize.


Lighting effects, color layers, adding channels for different effects -- didn't keep track - just had fun playing till I got something I liked...

CJ, I like how the pink came out in your image. Soft and gentle.

I went quick and dirty. Buzz, VP watercolor, then VP oil, with PSP8 lighting effect. Trying to capture an after the rain feeling.

BIG ditto here, JC. I, too, like that combination -- a LOT.

- - - - - - - - - -

This combination is based on a suggestion from Harry Ellerton, who once again inspires me:

* Layer 1 (top): Stroke Frame
* 2: (Soft light) Filled with 50% gray and applied a custom texture via the texturizer filter
* 3: Hue/Sat adustment layer. Sat = 45
* 4: (Darken, 50%) Copy of Background + Blur > Smart Blur > Edges only (30, 100. Low). Added a hide all layer mask and airbrushed white here and there to bring in line detail.
* 5: Merged layers 6, 7 and applied Unsharp Mask (150, 1.0) to give it some personality.
* 6: (Darken) Copy of Background + Impressionist > Charcoal > Default (Background = Image)
* 7: (Normal) Copy of Background + Artistic > Dry Brush (8. 4, 1)
* Background

Created this using the technique from Russel Brown's Tips and Techniques, found here.

I could not get the JS script to download properly but wrote a small one to do the rotation of the image which produces this effect. Rotates 22.5 degrees 120+ times.

Sometimes I like to run a single action or filter multiple times. Here I ran a Gothic Glow action 4 times.
Then I saw Christine's excellent B/W and had to overlay in Luminosity at 50%. Hope you don't mind Christine.

Cheers
Dave
