I love this image composition so much! Big cheese & wine, little guy, I was jarred into interest from the start :-) So I've spent some time playing, with it, hope you don't mind!
I guess what I'd most like to see would be more contrast... so I tried LucisArt 'whyeth' filter, then added some Redfield 'perfectum' to smooth it back down and got this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687214.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687214.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' which is not quite what I had envisioned.
Plus I got to thinking, not everyone has LucisArt and Redield and whatever flavor of the day plugins, so why not do it straight from PS? So I did a couple of different USM passes at different settings and a levels adjustment to get this:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687216.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687216.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Now I realize I have strayed from the norm, so why not keep straying??? So I strayed and made a colorized version based on the whyeth/perfectum version. The colorization was done by making duplicate layers of the original then applying colored filters to them then masking out the part of the image I didn't want colorized...probably a pretty clunky approach, but I've been having lots of fun with this technique and here is the result
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687217.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/70000-74999/74559/120/687217.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Thanks, Deb, for posting such a wonderful image to play with!
