    Hi NiteOwl,

    I like the pic a lot. Was this just tweaking the bas relief filter or did you use any other stuff too.
    I've tried to use the bas-relief a couple of times but couldn't get anything worhtwhile out of it. So after seeing your result I'll have to try again.
    I really like the idea of texture that flows with the lines in the photo. Nice pictures from the barrel races too! Hard to get those fast horses I imagine! What speed did you take them with?
    Sorry I'm such a nosy person!

      Thanks for your opinions.

      Thank you both Gina and Don for your input. I gave up on filters awhile back, but then decided to give them another try. I do tweak the filter effect, but then I also go back to color/contrast and sharpening as well. Sometimes I might bounce back and forth several times. I learned that it is never as easy as just slapping on the filter.

      Thanks again for your input, and hopefully now that things are slowing down a bit, I can get back into the digital art loop again.

      Take care,

      PS Gina, I use a Sony Cybershot DSC-F717, and the fast horse shots were taken at 800 ISO.

        I like the picture, but had to go and look at the full-sized one to get the full effect.

        The Bas-Relief seems to really "Freeze" the instant in time, which is in great juxtaposition with the content of the horse running the barrel!

        I tend to use filters quite a bit, but try to remember that they are just a tool to convey an idea through an image. If the idea does not need anything, then no filter is needed.

        By the way, I love the other work out at your album.

          HELP - What filter is this?
          by DannyRaphael
          A couple years ago I was tinkering around and applied a filter to the attached image, a section of which I have uploaded. (Left side: Before. Right side: After filter applied).

          I didn't rename the layer with the filter name and settings used like I normally do.

          Today I ran...

          Filter Forge has added two less-expensive versions of their software.

          by abstract1
          I have never used one before so therefore i don't have one, but wanted to know if anyone had a combination of filters they used to get an embroidery effect, or if there is a filter that is specifically for that. Can anyone point me in the right direction please with names and URL's?

          Fade function after using a Photoshop Filter
          by CharlesBell
          Picked this up while reading a new book on astronomical image processing:

          Immediately after using any of PhotoShop CS2 filters, you can go the Edit menu and select Fade ... to fine tune the application of that filter and get very precise results. The idea is to apply a bit too heavy...
