WOW, I really like what everyone has come up with in this thread. They are all so different. What a wonderful, creative variety.

Lately, however, my creativity has been running a tad to the wild and crazy (must be the meds I'm on ). Jaykita, yours in especially marvelous.

For the longest time I could never figure out why, when I applied a Posterize adjustment layer with Levels = 3, there always seemed to be a whole lot more than 3 colors.

Now I get it: 3 levels x 3 color channels (RGB) = 9 distinct colors.

If you start with a grayscale image (which I did in this case), all the channels are the same... so Levels = 3 results in Black, White and 50% Gray.

*The light goes on!*

Thank you, CJ, for helping me put a piece in the puzzle!

Always happy to "be of help" to our Photo Art leader
Thank YOU, Danny, for sharing that info -- I hadn't even thought about it..., and if I had, probably wouldn't have "seen the light".

P.S. -- I really like the effect of the Posterization on this image!

As a life long "Band Mom", I really enjoyed working on this piece. High school band is a great tradition and I know how much my son enjoyed and benefitted from both his high school and college marching experiences.

I went a little whimsical and added a mediveal flutist to conjure up the ghost of musicians past. Just a piece of Illustrator clipart with some noise/GBlur added and a shadow to set him in place among the other musicians.

This is a fun photo to work with and I love all the different renditions.

Lots of layers on this.

-Duplicated background and made a pretty rough selection, inversed,deleted background, inversed again and filled all the band members and shadows with black, styled with outer glow of yellow.
-Duplicate background, gausian blur, multiply, and back off opacity to about 72%,
-New layer, filled with green and slid it under my background copy layer.
-New layer, drew my grid adjusted perspective and copied
-Pasted grid to another new layer, and flipped it horizontal. combined these two grid layers and placed them under background copy and above fill layer.
-New layer, rectangular selection, filled with gradient, slid under background copy above grid.
-Flattened visible, added noise.

This is pretty close to what I did though there were a couple other steps that I cannot remember.

I had to save as a GIF in order to maintain file size to be posted on RP.

This was interesting, took the above image and ran a fresco filter at 55% opacity.

Not sure which one I like better though.

Can't recall really what I did here as it was a week ago or so.

Can be guaranteed that the levels and curves were adjusted though....
