Creative interpretations: Water Wagon

Just think: This was the prototype for bottled water!

I ran this image through the recipe Leah outlined in the thread

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/non-retouchpro-resources/8634-misty-moody-muted-challenge.html

and the results are kind of nice, I think.

(Remembering a photo from Janet)
I came up with this.
Pencil sketch using the action here topped with a standard PS Copper Gradient Map masked for the background.

my try

well, here's my attempt. Any critique is most welcome. <EDIT: I just realized, I mislabeled one layer. It was Dry Brush, not Paint Daubs.>

can I post a second

I'm a big fan of the way this looks. It also acts as a great starting point to work from.

You're right... this method yields a base from which to further create.

Glad to see your efforts here. Keep 'em coming.

Hi:
I just was playing with Nik2.0 and I just liked the color scheme. I used IR Solorize Color for the color portion. I then did the wagon as IR B&W and masked the wagon to the background. The yellows kind of remind me of Colorado in the fall with the trees on the mountains.
Thanks
Bob

Xenofex 2 - classic mosaic

Had to try a new toy... My copy of Xenofex 2 arrived today. I was especially interested in the mosaic filter.

Options include the ability to choose tile size, grout width and grout color. A random button enables you to get different results on the same image.

It's actually pretty cool...I'll be interested to see how it does on a portrait.
