    Great picture, Danny.

    I decided to take a more photographic approach with this one.

    * Recolored using color-mixer layer to darken sky and lighten tree
    * Used a selection to turn foilage of tree more autumn colored
    * Performed Sumi-e on sky to give it that stormy feel

    Thanks,
    Jeff

      Danny:
      I have been learning about the filter>distort>spherize command today. So I decided to put a scene within a scene. I am not sure which world is real or maybe both are especially in photography. Anyway this is my contribution.
      Thanks

        Bob:

        I'd say you're learning your lessons, well. Very creative.

        Jeff:

        FINALLY! A use for Sumi-e that I actually like! (That filter ususally does more harm than good IMO.) Nice integration of the effect with the pic.

        This was created using a method based on steps described in the October/November NAPP supplement describing how to use the new Filter Gallery feature in Photoshop CS.

        I've created an action that can be found here.

          Danny, nice oil effect. One of these days I'll have to get PS so I can use actions. By the way, to actions work with Elements? (I am using PSP7).

          As for Sumi-e, I like the effect if the lines work with the composition; it creates a cool contrast. In this case, the lines help to direct the viewer's eyes toward the mountain, which directs the eye toward the tree. It works!

            This is a beautiful shot! Lots of fun to play with.

            jch--The way you darkened the sky really brought out the richness of the foreground colors.

            Bob--totally cool effect! I like it.

            Danny--it does look painted. Is the texture part of the action or do you choose your own?
            [If by texture you mean the pseudo-canvas, that's an optional layer applied by the action using the Texturizer filter with canvas option. - Danny]

            I call this mixed bag. It's primarily a color layer topped by a sketch layer. With a hue/saturation layer on top for minor adjustment at the end.

            For the color layer, I started with the impressionist plug-in and my crackled paint preset. The I used fantastic machine's bad brush and faded 65%

            For the sketch layer, I started with buzz's simplifier and edges mono. Then impressionist crackled paint followed by fantastic machine's borg. Both were faded 65% as I went along. Impressionist puts a little color into the sketch layer so I desaturated and adjusted the brightness and contrast slightly. I used overlay for the blending mode.

              This photo is so lovely as is! I decided to go for a more brightened shot by removing some color cast and adding detail especially on the tree. It's hard to see unless you compare the 2 photos.

              I just love the colors in this pic!

              Blu

                Blu--what an excellent reminder that sometimes all an image needs is a little touch-up on the colors and that trying to "artify" it can't improve on the original. The little extra oomph you gave the colors is just the right touch.
