  • Creative interpretations: Commuter Train

    I thought this picture taken by Doug Kay would lend itself to one of the moody effects I've seen applied to images. Looks like Humphey Bogart should be entering stage right.

    Happy creating.

    p.s. If you have never heard of Bogart, enjoy the fact you're a lot younger than I am!

    I really like how this free Mike Finn action (Watercolor) worked on this one. It's available here: http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

    Copied the original BG to the top of the layer stack, Layer > Add Layer Maek > Hide all and airbrushed white to restore a touch of detal around the people on the platform and to tone down the lamp glare.

    Finished up by adding Hue/Sat and Levels adjustment layers to the top of the layer stack to fine tune the effect.

      Nice picture and Nice manipulation, Danny!

      I, too, am old enough to appreciate Bogart.

      Here's my interpretation:
      * Increase saturation/lightness
      * Unsharp Mask (1,150,0) 2x
      * PSP Edge preserving smooth (30)
      * Unsharp Mask (1,150,0)
      * PSP Edge preserving smooth (30)
      * Remove one distracting white spot (select & median filter)
      * buZZ simplifier 1

      I was trying to not use any plugins, but buZZ really added something.

          I love seeing Bogie next to the train, Platscha!

          I went for a darker, moodier look. First I adjusted the levels, then added a little grain. I dodged the figures to make them brighter, and added a little mist with the Xero filter. I added a black solid color adjustment layer, then painted to reveal only part of the image. A setting worthy of Bogart, I hope!

            Old enough to remember :-)

            Nice image Danny...

            I ran my new action "DigiDoodle" (Unreleased as yet) over it and this is just one result I liked. Tried to increase the "mood"

                But here's another from the same action..... A bit more of a smoky painted effect.

                    train

                    This one is mostly PSP8's large drybrush, buzz and xero lineart with monochrome.

                      Ran a Motion Blur on the train. Inverted and ran a Mini Finn: Texture (Layer) Edge Effect (Layer) Sprayed Strokes (layer)

                        I was experimenting with "channel swapping," the interchange of channels using the Channels palette menu commands Split Channels and Merge Channels. The results are usually very colorful and most unpredictable.

                        It's kind of like applying the Stylize > Solarize filter, but with more control and options.

                        This one is a combination of two channel swap results merged onto individual layers. The layers were blended using a Black-to-white gradient on the top layer's Layer Mask and setting this layer's blend mode to Linear Burn to give it some more funkiness.

                        I got the action to carve things up from the action exchange at http://studio.adobe.com/. Search on Photo_Weave if you are interested.

                          The same "entity" looking out of the windows. Xero soft mood followed by Xero Ultraviolet, then Flaming Pear Melancholytron.

                          Cheers

                            I usually have a hard time with dark photos, but the wonderful interpretations posted so far tempted me to try again.

                            This is a mix of lucis art and nik's midnight filter topped with several different pattern fill layers in soft light blending mode.

                              Cheryl, I've never heard of those filters. Pray tell, where does one find them. The result is very interesting.
