Re: Creative interpretations: Soldier and a Kitten

When I saw this I had to have a go.
We've just found out some of our lads will be coming back home from Iraq soon - great news.

1st lucis and cutout filter.
2nd art history brush.
3rd pencil sketch.

Re: Creative interpretations: Soldier and a Kitten

I am new at this, so don't be too hard on me. This is what I could come up with.
Each color represent the situation.

Peter -- I like the one in the middle best -- mainly because it shows the young man's face most, and that is such an important part of this image.

Steve -- nicely done.

Gaulois -- we're never hard on anyone who's submitting a creative interpretation.

Thank you CJ. That original is quite an image. My favorite photos are mood photos that tell a story. Probably comes from my having shot a lot of spot news photos, I guess.

had a go at this also:
Did a sketch and layered over original to bring back just a touch of color. Might have been better converted to B&W to keep the somber but compassionate mood.

Thanks much.

I don't have your spot news experience, but I share your preference for mood photos that tell a story. This one brings so many reactions and emotions to the surface -- it was a great capture.

Re: Creative interpretations: Soldier and a Kitten

Used GIMP's Retinex filter to fake a Lucis, and then ported the result into PS and ran ePaperPress's Pen and Ink Action. A few other color/sat enhancements as well.
