Creative Interpretations: English Castle

This is a picture of Bodiam Castle in Kent, although it looks from the outside as if it is complete it is in fact just a shell as the entire interior, which was wooden, was destroyed by fire.

Castle - Couldn't resist

My second submission..and my first attempt with this...bit dramatic but that is how a castle should be lol

I played around for ages but I used the chalkaholic I think then combined two layers, played with the colours and then flattened and buzzed. The I used Impressionist filter translucent damp brush and then selected the sky to make more dramatic with adjustment layers.. Probably lots more but so many I can't remember..just get carried away.

Love the sky Ann - very appropriate.

Here's mine

Overlaid image with a blurred fractal image in colour mode.

Merged the 2 layers to a new layer.

Ran chalkaholic, blurred slightly.

Duplicated original and ran Xero line art - moved layer to top and changed mode to multiply.

Rough painted white over edges.

castle

Kiska: Uh huh, you went crazy...but it all works and is a great abstract.

Ann: Love the rendition. It looks dark and moody. Just like I picture those old castles to be in my mind's eye.

Xaran: Good post. And good rendition. Much lighter and more free than the others. Reminds me of castles in a child's book of stories.

I tried to turn it to night that is the moon in the left side(?) and the rest was done using Nike Filters Solarization color (1,57%,54%) for castle, water (3,65%,64%) and there fog filter. Then touchups.
Thank you for the nice castle.

Bob...

Love the look of the castle at night. The lighting is subtle but effective. Very romantic looking.

Thank you for the photo Xaran, a nice one to work with...!

Ann - I like the way you get carried away LOL - great result.
Christine - Very good effect, nice outlines and colourising.
Kiska - So you did but it's fun!
Bob - You got a great result no bother at all.

I started with duping the original layer (after making auto col etc changes)
Applied PSP8.01 chrome effect then embossed it.
Duped again and added 2/3 lighting effects. Merged layers.
Decided to select the sky next (new layer) and added a gradient(layer mode - colour) Merged again and added some wee sparkly stars.

Cheers
