    That's a New York taxi.


    Sorry, done in PS7. Duped background, motion blurred, and used a layer mask to paint the taxi back in. Hey, you guys knew that anyway....

      I've never been to New York, but it's certainly a contrast to where I live. I think the tallest building here is 3 stories.

      Just to satisfy myself I could do something without impressionist--I think I'm having withdrawals.

      3 dups of the background.

      1. Lowest layer: lightened the image and ran fresco
      2. middle layer: Ran buzz pure color, faded it somewhat and then ran the buzz simplifier. St to overlay at 75%
      3. Top layer is just a dup of the original in pin light mode--it gave back a little detail.
      4. Topped with a pattern fill layer in soft light for texture.

        Thanks for coming along with this image just in time. I have just aquired Photoartmaster (PAM) Gold 1.5. This is the first attempt and coinsides with the first lesson. Not great and alot more to learn but I believe that PS and PAM will work together nicely.

        Oh CherylH I really like your fresco its a lot better then the filter out of PS really nice.

          Catia - That's exactly how fast they go.
          Cheryl - I like the color andthe texture of your version.
          Bob - I love that sketchy - acrylic style you've rendered.

          Danny - great picture.

          Working from bottom to top:
          1. Note paper blend mode- darken.
          2. Note paper blend mode- screen.
          3.Trace contour, desaturated, blend mode- vivid light.
          4.Original's copy set to hard light to bring the colors back. Flattened and adjusted color to my satisfaction.

              Mostly just foolin' around with this one.

              Problem is, in New York if it's raining you can never find a taxi.
