    Took a pic of my flowers and house. Cropped and adjusted colors (does anyone else who uses a digital camera notice a failure to accurately reproduce a blue flower?)

    Went to CANVAS SIZE and made it 200 pixels wider than original and twice as tall. Selected all and slid pic to top of canvas. Copied the background.

    Flipped it vertical and slid it down to bottom of top pic.

    Made a new blank layer. Did the SHIFT/OPTION/COMMAND/E which copies all layers into the new one. Copied that layer.

    Did a transform/flip horizontal and slid over to edge. Repeated for the other side.

    Poked the background level in the eye and then merged visible. Did a Levels adjust to lighten midtones.

    Ran Eye Candy 3 Glass filter and adjusted to suit. Ran Photoshop's Glass filter, frosted.

    Copied that layer, did a smart blur, edge and adjusted to suit. Did an inverse and set the layer to color burn blend.

    Kind of a kaleidoscopy looking thing without the full effect.

    Our first entry! Interesting effect flipping your photo on three sides…looks like a photo in a mirrored box. Nice work!

      That's pretty cool. At first you don't see it but you know there is something unusual and then as your eyes search it you see the reflected areas. Jeanie's right, it does look like you're viewing it through a box with mirrors. Like the coloring too.

        Jeanie's right...I thought I was "T"

          Very nice image. To me, it looks more like a view through a piece of beveled glass. Good effect.

          Hey...just noticed the avatar. Cool!

            OOPs Big boo boo. I meant T and typed Jeanie. I think I must have been thinking of Jeanie at the time. Sorry T. Glad you caught that. Or maybe it was that new avatar. Yup that must have been it.

              You just happen to think of me at odd moments throughout your day huh, DJ?

              Interesting effect BK! Bright colors (which I really like) and a unique take on "reflection" that I would not have come up with on my own. I like it!

                Okay for the “Translucency challenge” I walked around the house trying to find a translucent object to take a picture of. I played with smoked glass, my scanner’s dust cover and a frosted picture frame, but I just wasn’t coming up with any ideas from these items. Then I came across some bubble-wrap....

                Hi Again!

                Can't seem to get in a serious mood here. I suppose it's too dern hot for *real work* so I am still playing with pushing paints.

                All belief is perspective and angles must be abandoned here in favor of artistic license. This strategically placed mirror is a voyeur's...

                I met this fella this morning a snapped his pic. Looks as if he would like some cheering up!!

                Please help brighten his day.

                I used the extraction commmand to seperate the pup and arms/hands from the background.

                Ran H/S on the background...

                Don't know if anyone cares one way or not, but as I was crusing tonite I found some stuff on glass and got mildly stimulated by the prospect of making something in PSP.
                Some of what I was looking at was for real glass, but if it can be done there, it can be done here. There is nothing inherently...

                Hello there!

                I have this age old pic of me and my lil' sis taken out via a dot matrix printer...Have given it a shot myself but my limited eXposure to Photoshop prevents me from doing a "great" or even a moderately decent restoration job at it...
