Creative interpretations: Lopez Moon

This is a splice (by me) of two images of Lopez Island, WA taken by a friend of member Marylynn Strickland. Marylynn (with the photographers permission) thought it might make a fun CI.

Note: The colors were not manipulated by me. This is a soon-after-sunset shot.

Thanks, Marylynn -- and tell your friend thanks, too.

MaryLynn -- wonderful image -- the colors and the mood.

Using the Kaleidoscope action from RetouchPro's forum topic on the subject, I then selected some areas for post-processing -- selected a hue from the image to use for the border (left white by the action) and ran a Leather texturizer filter on it. Selected another copy of the moon from the original and added it in the center, with a radial zoom blur for effect.

beautiful image

This one is easy.
I duped the Background.
Then I loaded the Red Channel as a selection and ran the Impressionist:Paint:Hot Swirl with a brush size at 63%.
Then I loaded the Blue Channel and did the same.
Ditto for the Green Channel, but I Faded to a lower Opacity.
Then I loaded the Red Channel and Inverted the Selection and ran the same filter.
Faded to a lower opacity.
Loaded and Inverted the Blue Channel and did the same, only I Faded to Darken.
Ditto for the Green Channel.

Voila.

I first got a little more color in image by duping 2x, one for cmyk, one for lab. Curves to adjust those two, then copy/paste into orig. image. the rest is in the layers palette.

I'm sure glad T got the Kaleidoscope thread going again. Those are fun to make and CJ's really caught my eye.

= = = = =

On this one I used a modified (by me) version of Wayne's C6 to C41 cross-processing action. See THIS POST for Wayne's actions. The comments in the post following his post describe the changes I made to them.)

I then experimented with the Curves Adjustment Layer settings to get a very unique color mix.

Fun and very interesting stuff! Thanks, Wayne, for the inspiration.

Hi,
I was playing around w/ this one, trying to figure out which direction I wanted to go with it. Inverted, applied craqlure, and then increased saturation, and just kept looking at that strange black moon and decided to keep it.

Thanks, Danny, for posting the picture of Lopez Moon. I, too, had spliced the two pictures together but I like the tree placement better on your version.

Here is a conservative interpretation that I have come up with.

Duplicated background and applied Diffuse Glow
Selected the trees and applied Watercolor/Soft Light 20%
Created a luminosity layer at 20%
