Interesting 3D look. That's a great intimidating Shark perspective.
TY Hobbit and SplatShot. This is a new effect here. The background is Notre Dame cathedral processed in a fragment and melting filter, Vivacity and Topaz sharpening. The effect is pretty impressive to me like an ice cavern for sea monkeys or something. .
VERY nice. Would love to know how you acheived the painterly effects.
Thank you LC, Nanny, Joan, Gummy and Crafty. LC, I will see what I can do. The first two filters are proprietary to ARCSoft but I have seen something similar in PS. I will snoop around and see what converts or translates. I am sure I can get close
Congrats, Hits. Super Image. This could have easily taken the top spot.
Drat, lost my Dell monitor this morning. Went to the thrift store and found 2 Sony flat screens for $3.00 and $8.00. Just hooked up the $3.00 and am on it right now. Nice screen... a bit smaller but sharper image than the Dell. My jaw is slack. Cool, I needed a break. Thanks for the comments and votes. One tries out new stuff and hope it sticks. I wasn't even going to enter this contest but got all inspired by a 3 year old friend. This is for him. Doc, Coolkat, Gum, Hobbit and Evirio.... many thanks.
Congrats on the Bronze. Cool surrealism.
Impressive piece, Hits. Congrats on the bronze.
LunaC, here is as close as I could come in photoshop Wind, Ocean Ripple and Sprayed Strokes
Photoshop this astronaut image any way you wish. Examples may include painting his costume, putting the astronaut on the moon or into space, including him in paintings. These are just some ideas.
You have 3 days to submit your entry. Submitting it early will give you plenty of time to read the critique comments and edit your image accordingly.
Thanks to LilGoldWmn and Stock Exchange for providing the source image.
US Astronaut Lisa Nowak was arrested after she attacked the woman she thought was involved with her lover astronaut Bill Oefelein.
Nowak told the police she and Oefelein had something
"more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship." We, common people, call it "marriage".
In this contest you are asked to photoshop astronauts doing crimes and smaller violations on Earth.
Examples may include robbery, tax evasion, traffic violations, smoking in forbidden places, etc.
To help astronauts exercise and stay fit while on the space mission,
photoshop astronauts doing physical activities, such as ballet,
dancing and sports. You can show these astronaut activities either on
their space missions, or participating in sports / ballet / dancing on
Earth. Astronauts have to be shown in their space suits,
showing faces of astronauts is optional.
