One Four Challenge – November, Week 2

So I have been expanding my skills with an online Photoshop Artistry course, learning a lot and having so much fun. I thought I would take a little of what I am learning and use it on this month’s One Four Challenge (Currently hosted by Nic).Western Port Bay District

So this week I took the a copy of Original image, cropped it and using various artistic filters and brushes I turned it into a old look-a-like watercolor effect (I think it ended up more grunge than water colour?). I then placed this on a paper look background and removed some of the image with a few layer masks. Followed with an adjustment layer or too to alter brightness and saturation. Added a scratched up distressed texture over the top and finished with a hit and miss frame.

I was quite happy with the end result, it looks like a really old photo. Click here to view last week’s variation.Β Or see below Slide Show (along with the Original)
