Creative Interpretations: Prague

This is a crop from the photo i took today. This sculpture by Bohuslav Schnirch is on top of National Theatre, Prague.

Hope this will be inspirational for you.

Beautiful piece of sculpture.
Very nice renditions, J.C., Neve. Neve, i'm always floored by your gorgeous frames!
I used a art-history brush, which I modified based on a tip from Jay Arraich, and blended it with a layer of smartblur-edge only.

jaykita - the smart blur-edge only gave it just the right touch

Nice pic. I like the angle of the shot. Inspired by Neve's lovely rendition. Here's an infrared effect with a hint of Impressionist.

Cheers
Dave

I *LOVE* the picture!

I went for a post-impressionist look, sans strokes.

Used adaptive equalization, and a lot of stuff to change colors and add/subtract detail. (PSP Edge Preserving smooth, Adobe variations, Polaroid Dust&Scratches, PSP Salt&Pepper, AmphiSoft Convolution Shaman, buZZ, ???)

Thanks for the pic!

-Jeff

wonderful rendition, Dave... looks like night-vision shot during the moon-rise
Jeff - great one love the boldness of it


i got almost run over by a tram while taking that photo... unfortunately, almost all sights in prague can be shot in interesting angle only while standing in the middle of the road here's a small view of the whole national theatre... front shot is almost impossible... there's a river there :

Jaykita, the frames come bundled with PSP8 Love your result, very pleasing.

Duv - Great result - it's fun experimenting. I just used the User Defined Filters in PSP8.1 (7x 7 laplacian ??)

JCH - Well done - I like using the AE filter quite a bit.

JustChecking, I'm very glad you survived your photo-taking adventure. I Buzzed your photo, ran VP on watercolor w/ stucco background, made 2 layers w/ one in softlight blend, then put an edge mask on it.
