Yorky Doodle

By woolybill1
A first for me today: I'm filing this under Digitally Manipulated because I have messed about one heckofalot with the original image of Rowntree Wharf in York that first appeared as Leaning Tower last week. And so much for my crowing that I do not record my procedures: Since I am not used to this I have explained it, in reverse order - -

Version 1 is the final result. It is V2 that has been Gradient Mapped (metals palette).
Version 2 is V3 subjected to Polar Coordinates (Filters > Distort > Polar Coordinates).
Version 3 is V4 that has been pinched (Filters > Distort > Pinch). I think it works particularly well in vertical format, btw.
Version 4 is 4 versions of V5 - original, flipped horizontally, flipped vertically and double flipped. After assembling the four I flattened the layers before proceeding to V3.
Version 5 is the working original for this set, though of course it began as a colour image and has been desaturated, turned into a negative etc etc etc..............

I shall try to find something 'normal' for tomorrow.

A really lovely set of images, can't decide which I prefer because it's so satisfying switching from V1to V2 the V3 to V4!! The final result looks like the face of some alien being....but then I have been watching a lot of Dr Who lately....blame the Husband!!
I love what you have created here Bill. Excellent stuff!

After reading what you had achieved, I came backwards from V5 & can understand it better than going forwards.....
Fantastic work Bill.......love the end result of V1.

No wonder you do not record procedures Bill.All that techno,gooble degook,would be enough to split Moiras wooden head open !! I thought No1 could be a bit of chrome detail of a classic car.Or a harley bike !! Good results here,however they were achieved !!

Some one has way too much time on their hands....are you sure Moira doesn't need help with the house keepingSmile Actually, I very much like your end result, and doodling is such a fun and relaxing pastime. From a Yankee DoodlerSmileSmile

fantastic image - i really enjoy doing these kinds of images and the great thing is you can get one from a good base photo or make a potential delete photo into something cool Grin

i like the build up over the 5 images but V1 is definitely my favourite - an attention grabber and a joy to sit and work out =)

Torn between #1 and #2 Bill - #1 has the more abstract feel; like you've just won a cup for a major tournament, but I also like the clearer "rib cage" feel of #2

Fantastic end result, Bill, and a well documented procedure. Cheers Smile

One has to wonder, though, what Moira puts in her stews...hmmm...

A...
Fantastic bit of fiddling Bill! I thought it was some sort of silver ball bearing when I first saw V1.

Super work and manipulations
john
That's an awful lot of Magic! I really admire the ability to manipulate in this way. I thought it was the reflection in a wheel hub until I read your write-up. great result. Sylvia

I particularly like the Kalaidescope effect of versions 3 and 4 .

Looks like this has given you much entertainment Bill Smile , its like doodling but more hi tech .

Thank you for the encouraging comment today to which I have added a reply .

I like V1 and agree with Mick, I thought it was perhaps a headlamp to a shiny vehicle of some kind.

I thought it was of reflections in a hubcap at first, second and third looks, works very well and good explanation too

Really love what you've done here, and really good to see the progression from the 'original'. Looking at V1 I thought it was a chrome somethingorother! Then I saw where it came from! Amazing!

Interesting set of images - but you have lead with the right one, I think. I really love the abstract nature of this. Carol
