nice image.

Well, I guess I'll start this one off:
I duped the BG.
Next I ran Impressionist: Sumi-e:Colored Strokes on Grey.
Faded:Lighten
Impressionist: Sumi-e: Fine Ghost Brush.
Faded: Overlay
Impressionist: Sumi-e: Dry Strokes on Pitted Stone
Fadedarken and lower opacity.
That's it!

Great way to start this thread. Some of the effects you can get through Impressionist combinations is truly amazing. I can see (now) I better dust off Sumi-e and do a little experimenting. (Too many Styles, too little time.)

Thanks for the Monday dose of inspiration.

Channel Mixer set to Monochrome. Changed settings to bring out clouds against sky. Set layer to Luminosity.
Flattened. Created white layer and with History Brush and Trimoon brush preset, painted with various brush configurations. Erased back partially fence.

Cheers
Dave

I played w/ this one for a while and didn't keep track of the process, but it's pretty obvious, mostly crosshatch filter, some smudging, sandstone filter, and an edge frame.

Hi Danny,

What an interesting scene. We don't have such things here in Australia. I've had a quick dabble with it and this is what I've come up with.

I duplicated the Layer and used the Smart Blur Filter to get a line drawing effect. I inverted this and used a Blend mode of Overlay.

In between these two Layers I then created a Hue/Saturation Layer and a Color Fill Layer to add a bit of color to the foreground using the Inverted mask and painting in where needed.

Finally I used a Rough Pastel filter on the Background Layer for added texture.

Regards

Con

Wonderful results everyone.....!!!! No...you don't see bridges like this in OZ I agree but I've lost count how many movies I've seen this bridge in or another just like it.

Happy new year BTW....

Hi
I liked the bridge almost like Madison County, Iowa anyway this is what I did:
1. Changed to B&W Contrast with nik Filter 2.0
2. Dry Brush 0,10,2 for clouds
3. Graphpen 15, 49, vertical (bridge)
4. Merge 1 & 2 together
5. Background copy to top opacity 17%
6. Copy backround used graphpen 15,49, vertial masking a different opacities in.
7. Copy background used crosshatch 9, 6, 1 masking for trees and other areas I found suitable.
8. Merged all and used levels 0, .96, 255
Thanks
Bob
Just was playing around with it again and thought I post- it.
Thanks
Bob

Hi Danny,

I was quite intrigued by your photo so I hope you don't mind me having a second go at your image.

I processed the photo as if it was taken through some film photographic techniques.

My first image was a psuedo Infra Red effect. Infra red film is composed of three layers just as normal color film is. It's just recording different wavelengths. In simple terms the Red emulsion is recording the Infra Red wavelengths of light and making it visible to us by showing it as red.. The Green Emulsion Layer is actually recording the red wavelengths. The Blue emulsion is recording the green wavelengths.
These film types are also sometimes known as "False Color" for the reasons above.

With this in mind I created a similar effect by using the Channel Mixer.

I went to the Red Channel and set the Red slider to Zero and changed the Green slider to 100
Next in the Green Channel I set the Green slider to Zero and changed the Blue slider to 100
Lastly I went to the Blue Channel and set the Blue slider to zero and moved the Red slider to 100.

There you have it. Instant Infra Red.

My second attempt was a technique known as Solarisation or the Sabattiere Effect which gives an image that is part positive and part negative.

This was done simply in Curves.

I dragged the top of the curve down until it was a flat line on the bottom of the graph. I then grabbed the middle of the curve and dragged it to the top so that it looked like an upside down "U".

That's basically all there was to it. You can also modify this idea by creating several peaks and troughs for a more extreme effect.

Regards

Con
