This is so different from the images I usually like to make and I had a ball playing around with it. A line of rental bikes at the beach. Applied various filters in PS.

Super job. Kerby #1516528

Andrea W. Hedgepeth June 24, 2005

Thanks so much Kerby. The original was shot in the middle of the day and was really washed out, but I liked the way the bikes were aligned so I fiddled around in PS until I came up with this. #1516552

I'm very interested in your approach. We have several pen and inks around the house. I want to create one out of a photo of a beloved family pet but unsure where to start. It would also be useful for turning photos into diagrams. What was your approach Andrea? #1820511

Excellent art! Congrats! #1821157

Andrea W. Hedgepeth September 10, 2005

Thanks a bunch everyone! What a great surprise to wake up to! For those of you who asked how this came about: The image was made in the middle of the day so the colors were washed out. I really liked the lines and wanted to salvadge it so I cropped it and started playing around in PS. Much of what I tried didn't result in anything special so I would delete and try something else. In the end what I did was to increase the saturation a bit, then use the edges colour in filters. If you don't already have you can download a trial version at #1821171

Very excellent work of photoshop, it is like a painting, Andrea! Congrats on POTD! #1821203

September 10, 2005

Wow! One day a photographer, the next an artist! Suddenly a star is born!

Excellent Andrea.You should definately frame this one! And sell it to biking shops and magazines everywhere! ;)

I love playing w/Photoshop too,
Especially all the plug-ins.

September 10, 2005

I agree with dale, you could sell this to bike shops and they would eat it up. I love to play around with pictures that are even a little blurry with this tecnique I dont have photoshop yet but you can achieve the same affect in just playing with the different art features in your photo program. They are fun to use. Great picture. #1821470
