  • Creative Interpretations: School Band

    I went to a small town parade and took this image of a school band.

    Hope it catches your interest!

    Top layer is copy of original run thru the new Xero Caravaggio filter; set to Overlay layer blend mode --

    next layer is the masked-out result from the Red channel after running Levels to increase contrast --- ran the Distort --> Wave filter on mostly the dark areas, then I changed the color to a yellowish hue; set to Overlay layer blend mode;

    Bottom layer is color range selection for sky blue and tree green plus a bit of the street added by hand in quick mask -- ran Paint Engine's "Riverwild" filter;

        Oooooh, Neve -- lovely, light and cheery result! Gives me the feeling that I had while I was there.

            Thought these guys needed a little color. Dup, b/w, smudge, aniso, cutout. Color fills.

                  Motion blur, change hue, layer mask with drop shadow, bevel and emboss, color overlay, colorburn blend with original. Intrigued by Manju's technique!!

                      WOW, I really like what everyone has come up with in this thread. They are all so different. What a wonderful, creative variety.

                      Lately, however, my creativity has been running a tad to the wild and crazy (must be the meds I'm on ). Jaykita, yours in especially marvelous.

                          For the longest time I could never figure out why, when I applied a Posterize adjustment layer with Levels = 3, there always seemed to be a whole lot more than 3 colors.

                          Now I get it: 3 levels x 3 color channels (RGB) = 9 distinct colors.

                          If you start with a grayscale image (which I did in this case), all the channels are the same... so Levels = 3 results in Black, White and 50% Gray.

                          *The light goes on!*

                          Thank you, CJ, for helping me put a piece in the puzzle!

                            Always happy to "be of help" to our Photo Art leader
                            Thank YOU, Danny, for sharing that info -- I hadn't even thought about it..., and if I had, probably wouldn't have "seen the light".

                            P.S. -- I really like the effect of the Posterization on this image!

                              Rect to Pola > Pola to Rect

                              Basics were on a duplicated copy Distro>pola> rect to polar
                              Brush strokes> Angled strokes (50/15/3)
                              distro>pola> polar to rect.
                              Then USM
                              Add hue
                              (did not add any texture)
