  • PHOTO ART: Mini-Challenge #13 - Brooklyn in the Summer

    Here’s another “mini-challenge” to play with in the Photo-based Art category. See "Information and Guidelines below" if this is your first mini-challenge.

    - - - - - - - - - - -

    Confession time.
    I've never been to Brooklyn. I don't know if this is a even a picture of Brooklyn. It could be Miami for all I know.

    But it is summer... and it could be Brooklyn. Use your imagination and pretend a little, OK?

    - - - - - - - - - - -

    The transporter is ready. Strap on your helmet.

    Keep having enourmous amounts of FUN!

    INFORMATION AND GUIDELINES

    Unlike “official challenges” for this forum which can be found here, this one will be self-contained within this thread. It is intended as an opportunity to engage in this artform until the next official challenge is posted.

    The rules are more-or-less the same:
    * It’s a challenge, not a contest -- intended to provide opportunities to experiment, share methods and/or techniques and, most importantly, have FUN.
    * Everyone who participates is a winner.
    * There’s no expiration date.

    GUIDELINES:
    1. Use any method, application(s), style(s) you like:
    . * Convert to sketch, grayscale, abstract, watercolor, oil painting, pen-and-ink, Conte crayon, impasto, van Gogh or any style of your choosing
    . * Add elements from other images (collage) or replace the background
    . * Hand painting? Tracing? Freehand? You bet. Always appreciate entries of this nature.
    . * Apply filters from your favorite application(s) or tweak it with 3rd party plug-ins
    . * Feeling animated? How about an stoplight that doesn't bother with yellow or multiple cars crossing the intersection?
    . * Any or all of the above

    Bottom line:
    How you create this masterpiece makes no difference. Whatever floats your boat as long as you follow guideline #4 in the process.

    2. When done, reply to this thread and attach your work (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.

    Two runs on original image of versions of sharpen - (all from Danny's link) High pass sharpening and high pass sharpening 2. Just kept running them and letting them create new documents from the previous one.

    ran one called Painter

    ran Medley watercolor

    ran the sharpen edges filter twice, because I wanted to accentuate the squares and make it look more like mosaic.

    Still wasn't enough, so ran curves and made a gentle S and thought yeah - that's it.

    and so that's it.

      Here's my version... I cut and pasted a dashboard in from a photo I found online, transformed it to fit into the original picture. Ran Andromada veliciraptor filter to create the streaks on the right side......flipped the image horizontally and ran veleciraptor again to create the streaks on the left side, then flipped the entire image again to return it to the original position. Went into Eye Candy 4000 and made the water drops. Resized and saved.

        Nice concept and execution! Great idea!

        I can't help but wonder how it would look with a wiper pattern more common to the US car manufacturer's wiper placement , where there is a gap in the middle where two wipers overlap...THAT would make it a show stopper.

          Challenge #13

          BLk Kngt...your rendition has an
          old fashion look to it..
          Ken...very creative concept...

          Opened callenge #13 in Photoimpact v6

          1.Lassoed out the car and made 5 dupes.
          Which will be the sprites.

          2.Copy paste original

          3.Draw tool/path edit...created some shapes

          4.Eyedropper ...selected various street colors
          for these shapes

          5.Positioned shapes over the car and using the clone
          brush and paint brushes developed the new corner

          6.Lassoed out from the original...the fence area
          on the far right and some tree leaves and using
          transform tool
          positioned them in front of the building

          7.Draw tool /path edit ...more shapes
          for the base of the lamppost...added some paint.

          8.Since it would be too tedious to lasso out the
          standing figures to create as objects,
          especially the cycle figure,
          I positioned the car dupes in a line and erased
          the areas of the car where they overlapped the figures.

          9. The copied photo is saved as frame 1.
          Each of the 6 cars is opened on a transparent background
          and saved as frames 2-7.

          10.Opened in PI Gif animator v4... tweaked the settings.
          it had to be reduced 50% and reduced from 256 colors
          to 80 in order to get under 100kb

          If I were to redo this I would remove the cyclist

            Clever Ideas!

            Ken and Tom, congratulations on two very clever ideas!

            Ken, you really need to clean those bugs off your windshield...LOL!
            Tom, my only suggestion is that you could have cut out the car with a modified lasso to get rid of that distracting black outline above it. But I love the way the car just keeps driving around the block...LOL! It would be fun to combine this with Ken's windshield view, then he could sit at the red light and watch the blue car whiz around the block over and over while he waited...and waited...and waited... Now THAT would say NYC for sure!

              Childhood Memories

              My goal was a childhood memory, thus the sunshine and bright crayon colors.

              First I made it into a painted-look scene using the sponge filter with increased saturation. To make sunlight streak down through the trees, I found the edges, put them in b/w, then did a radial blur on that layer and overlayed it onto the scene layer. I blended in more color variation with a low opacity radial transparent rainbow.

                          Here's my try. Started by eliminating the blue car then added Smart Blur to simplify, Find Edges, Ink Outlines, and Dry Brush. Cropped to current dimensions and then finished off by adding a new layer filled with an art paper color, added a layer mask, and revealed the picture with a wet media brush.

                            Looks like the "birthday boy" in the car.

                              Hmmm...yes, I see what you mean. It didn't upload right for some reason. Here it is again, hopefully intact this time.
