    PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #10 - Anything Goes

    As a slight departure from the "take this photo and do something with it" model, here's an opportunity for you to showoff a couple of your favorite already completed photo-art images -- preferably ones not already posted in the RetouchPRO Gallery nor previously submitted in other challenges.

    Note: It's OK to create and post something new for this thread if you are so inclined.

    ------------------

    Guidelines:
    1. Image(s) could have been created using any style, application(s), plugin(s), etc. -- as long as "photo-based art" is the general theme.

    2. Reply to this thread and attach your image (don’t forget the 100kb size limit).

    Note: Multiple entries OK if you’re so inspired.

    3. By all means include some verbiage on how you achieved your masterpiece so others will benefit from your skills and experience. Make it as descriptive as you like. Grammar and spelling will not be graded. Priority given to content, not how it is written.

    4. Have fun.

    Remember:
    * Everyone who participates is a winner.
    * There’s no expiration date.

    OK... Start poking around that hard drive and find a couple good ones to share.

    Keep having FUN!

    This is a sketchy rendition of the image used in Retouching Challenge #8, using a different method than on images previously posted.

    It's based on a combination of Photoshop's Colored Pencil filter followed by running Paint Engine twice, using the custom 0Wetter2 setting.

      A series of winter pictures that I thought conveyed winter in montage mode better than each image did separately. Nothing special except some blend modes and erasing.

        sketch, efx_painter, and Deke's Tracing Photograph (that I used on that seashore challenge) used with different blend modes and a little blurring of the background.

        To my way of looking at things. I appreciate more what has been done by seeing the original in these challenges, so I am going to post the original here after I post this.

        The image is from a collection I have on CD of royalty free images, so I believe it to be fair game.

            Shell Listen

            Blacknight, I really love what you did to Shell Listen. Looks like she is covered with sand, and that's exactly how kids at the beach are!

                  BK,
                  snowy is just so beautiful. I like the shell one too but snowy just has something that really appeals to me. Great work.

                  Danny,
                  very cool

                    Fantasy

                    This was done a few weeks ago for my PS class. The photos were shot in my neighborhood and then cut and pasted into the final image.

                        Don't Cry For the Horses

                        "Don't Cry For the Horses" is a poem about what happens to horses when they die--they go to heaven and become the clouds in the sky according to the poet. One line of the poem (hard to read in this small picture) says "on silver wings they fly, a million white horses against a blue sky."

                        Well, my daughter has a white horse, and I had a photo of him running across a field, so I made that into a background for this poem, which I print, frame and sell to a dude ranch gift shop, along with a variety of other horsey products.

                        Here is a reduced version of it (actual 8 x 10). If you can't read the poem, search by title on web. It's really a wonderful poem for anyone who has or has had a horse. I also make these for dogs and cats, with appropriate backgrounds and poems/prayers. They sell well, because everyone who has a pet is affected emotionally by the words and images. And that, after all, is what "art" is all about--evoking a feeling, right?

                          ATG #2

                          Here's anthor creation of mine from my PS class. I shot the pix using my Canon G1, then put them together with layers.

                            Endless Guitars?

                            A very clever idea, to have an item against a close-up of itself! I wonder though if it could be improved by removing the shadow from the blow up to disguise the fact that the light is coming from two directions (from bottom on blow-up and left on guitar). While I like the color and composition a lot, the difference in lighting says "something's wrong here," as also does the angle of the guitar. Would a shadow under the guitar have countered that "it's flat but it CAN'T BE flat!" look? Or maybe rotating the guitar 180 deg might help?

                            Or is this picture intended to be one of those mind boggling creations like Escher's "Ascending and Descending" drawing of the impossible staircase?

                            In either case, it got my attention and made me look at it again and again. So I guess that, as a piece of art, it has succeeded in its purpose!

                              Endless Guitar?

                              Thanks Phyllis. This piece was done in haste for my PS class. I had done something else but it turned out bad and my teacher offered a suggestion about guitars and their beautiful wood. I did 3 different ones but the teacher liked (and kept a copy of) this one. I feel the same things about it as you but who can argue with the teacher?
