    Art History, Texture (High-pass) sharpening, Lighting effects and some tweaking....

          Lovely result Byro and well done JC. I got myself into trouble in Painter. Started out okay cloning with - Oils/Fine Camel 10 (all over tigers). Then some Gouache (not cloned. picked white) to add back the whiskers and other parts of the fur.

          Oils/Thick Oil Bristle 10 on the poles and decking. Gouache again for the log under the decking (on a layer which I later lost)??? Then decided to try out the Hose feature (i.e. all the leaves at the front). Added a shadow to them.

          Then trouble - every time I go into any of the textures - I suddenly lose the ability to clone (ie. transparency doesn't work anymore). So frustrating and I've no idea how to get back to it.

          Anyway, finally finished off in PSP, smudging the bg. I prefer a texture added but posting here with the texture you cannot "see" what has been done as per the description.

            In PS7 duped the BG and did a Gaussian blur of 25 or so on the new layer. Added a mask and painted the tigers and warf back in. Saved and opened in PSP9. Ran one step photo fix and a watercolor script. Saved and opened in PS7. Cloned out some of the brush strokes I didn't like and added a texture layer. Resized and saved.

                  Excellent Lqqker, I like the overlaps onto the frame.

                    LQQKER -- Love it!

                    I liked the stone and wood, so kept them in the crop. Some sharpening/aniso diffusion plus a Find Edges layer with lighting effect to add texture. I love tigers, and they always remind me of copper which I also love, so I surrounded them with a bit of hammered copper.

                      What a beauty CJ. Strong colouring as it should be, love the touch of "copper".

                        Wonderful job, everyone! Neve, thanks for the beautiful image.
                        I tried to experiment with the stamp filter. Picked out the colors from the image. Finally, linearlight blend with original (g'blurred).

                          Nice pic. Compression killed all the detail in mine but I like tigers so I thought I would restart this thread. Maybe we'll see a few smudges.

                              Great find Joe lovely tigers, and how's this for a challenge i find tigers very hard to smudge (i think it is the stripes ) so i will be passing on this one and putting it down in the CATergory of too hard, any one gonna prove me wrong ?
