Talking Wonderful Family Pic

I really didn't want to do much to the subjects of this photo they look so great, so I came up with my "Dream Family" rendition.

I just fouind this site a couple of days ago and this is the first time I had a chance to start going through it. It is inspiring, what you all are sharing here . I was dying to get my feet wet and jump in.

Very nice rendering. It looks like you used the liquify filter over a black background and sort of dragged the pixels away from the center of attention. How did you do it??

Let me add my welcome. Congratulations for leaping right into the pool. You're now officially wet and one of the gang.

I like your concept and would also like to know more about how you got your results.

Smile Thanks All

I am glad you liked it. I didn't know what I was going to do so I just started playing. Here's what I did.

-First, I isolated the family and cut them out of the image.
-Second, I used the stylize filter and diffused the background.
-Third, went to liquify and applied a punk brush to draw the background towards the middle, then I pasted the family back in.
-Next, I made an elpitical selection around the people and inversed it.
-I then went back into liquify and brushed from the bottom center up and out
_last of all, while the selection was still inversed I equalized.
