Digital Manipulations Challenge XII, Fancy Fashion

In my efforts to come up with something different for this DM challenge, I thought about this image and decided, yep, this is different enough for the creative people that enjoy this type of challenge.

Hopefully you'll have fun with this one as you let your creative juices flow.

That's quite lovely, Lorell - has a bit of an old-time feel to it, which suits the garment.

I went in a completely different direction...

Re: Digital Manipulations Challenge XII, Fancy Fashion

Hey, I like it.
I like how the bodice changed color to RED and how the skirt part of the dress looks like it is made of sequins. I also think darkening the background to that extent made the dress really stand out and set a cool mood.

Re: Digital Manipulations Challenge XII, Fancy Fashion

It was a fine photo to start with, Lorell. And fun to play with.

I failed to record my steps, but I just succeeded in recreating it. Began by duplicating the layer and applying Artistic > Colored Pencil filter (in PSCS5) to it. Then I experimented with blend modes of this layer, finally hitting on "Subtract" which produced the inversion of colors and values. Then I applied a Gaussian blur to much of the photo, using a layer mask to which I applied a black/white gradient so the blurring progressed from none at the left to strongest at the right. This left some of the garment blurred, so I painted over the garment with white on the same mask with the gradient - this left it (the garment) nice and sharp, so it stood out better against the blurred parts beside and behind it.

Since I just used built-in PSCS5 filters and blend modes, one could say that it wasn't all that creative. On the other hand, I have acquired some idea of how filters and blend modes work and that helped, as did the localized blurring. I didn't plan to make the dress look sequined - that was an unplanned benefit of the filter and blend mode I ended up using.

OMG, Natalie,
You even put a photo of them in the window.
That's a good one and I do think it is a bit difficult to come up with something unusual or different. But your idea has now made me think of some other possibilities.
