Happy New Year everyone!! Thought I'd try a solarizing effect but instead of the filter I used a W curve.

Cheers
Dave

Thanks for finding such a beautiful image for us to play with Danny !

I simplified this with Gertrudis first then cloned in Painter with some of my own brushes. Finished and framed in PS.

Here is my artisit view of this bride...

Done with several layers with the paint brush, lightening adjustments and adding noise. Basically just fooling around, but much of the work was hand painted over the orig image. Using PS 7.

The other work on this image is breath taking!

Not quite where I wanted it to end up, but this will have to suffice, Wanted to have a more window detail, but my creativity failed me , maybe later. If someone wants to build from this, feel free.

Robin, I like yours a lot. Really looks like it was done from scratch by a wonderful artist.

Mine is mostly PSP8

An experiment.

I first started out with a Power Tone (Dup for three layers, set the top layer to Value, center layer to Saturation, and fill the base layer with the color of choice). I then blended Impressionist Van Gogh preset with Paint Engine's Arctic preset to get this result (and some additional color/contrast adjustments and mouse smudges too; canvas as well).

Some beautiful posts on this one, shame really that it is a model and not a "real" bride who could of kept these with her album.

Keeping to the same trend used the ahb brush

Here's my attempt.

Duplicated Layer used Motion Blur and screen bend mode. Added Mask to control effect.
Created a Hue/Saturation Layer to help emphasise figure.

Hope you like it

Regards

Con
