Lots of good interpretations.

For mine, used buzz, several color-enhancments, edge-enhancement, and edge-preserving smooth.

There is some very nice work posted using this picture. What good inspirations!!

This picture talked to me. Here is my manipulation for what it is worth.

Hey Raniday - What a nice idea, would like to have seen it on a clearer image, but great effect.

Janet - Nice idea, but i am having problem seeing the images you have faded in the background. I understand your theme and maybe thats the way you wanted it, but would have liked to have seen the designs a little clearer ( could be my monitor though)

I agree Axle, with the comment that they are a bit difficult to see. I made a mistake when I posted by thinking I could put the screenshot and the picture together. That made the compression too much. I would have been better off doing each separately. I can't repost the image because I deleted it. Sorry folks. My computer is approaching FULL so I do't keep much of anything these days.

Great idea Raniday. Very creative.

Janet

Hi Axle. I usually post the link to the photo where it's easier to view. Here it is for this one.
http://www.pbase.com/catbounds/image/38560635
I was aiming for a watercolor and ink look, done mostly w/ the smudge tool in layers, blending mode changes, line drawing, and texture on a photo borrowed from Morguefile.

I woud have opted for a margarita, but that would have eliminated the liquid transparancy.

In any event this is simply TERRIFIC! I applaud your vision and execution.

No problem posting pBase links to view a larger version in addition to forum attachments like you did for this interpretation. Sometimes that's the only way to see important detail like this.

Thanks,Danny.
Make mine a frozen Margarita. Enough of 'em, and maybe we could start to see desert reflections in the glass. Worth a shot anyway.

Usually the thumbnail is fine by itself, but this one did need more pixels. I'm still learning..........hope I always will be.
