K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle Effects

photo effects, graphics, classic cars

Freestyle effects plus classic cars? A win-win situation.

Good Morning All and welcome to a new Monday, or at least it is here in California. We, my buddy Dale and I, also welcome you to another go-round of the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week Dale gave us the prompt:

Freestyle Effects

Dale’s own contribution can be seen right here.

While I’m at it, here’s the surreal and beautiful work found over at Elizabatz Gallery

KG graced our challenge with these awesome images

Basically, what he’s looking for, in my humble obzervashun, is that we ramp things up on our chosen photo with noticeable effects work. He also made it a point to leave the door open on themes/photos/type of effects, and what have you. In other words, we get to chose whatever direction our creativity takes us.

Above you’ll find my take of ‘Freestyle Effects’ used on a photo of one of the classic antique cars found at last years San Francisco Car Show.

I decided to keep the original colors and atmosphere, but give the photo an almost cartoon effect and a little mysterious fog… something we here in San Francisco know all about!

Here’s a look at the original photo:


Want to join in? It’s not too hard to do:

Create your post as you always do, giving it a title to let us know you’re taking part in the challenge. Copy the URL of your new masterpiece and paste it into the comment section of either Dale’s post or this one you’re reading right now. Lastly, add the tag #CosPhoChal to your tag section and you’re done.

        1. …I’ve got to get better at replies! Yes. I’m of the same mind on ‘The Dark Tower’. I’m slightly worries the original story’s been changed, so we’re told. Still, I love the flip of Edris Elba being the ‘man in black’ (Roland). Great lead actors/actresses never hurt a film in my humble obzervashun…

    1. Thanks, and i thank Dale for upping the challenge to get me to consider this graphic. I’ve been doing more and more of these types of ‘photo recreations’. Look for more in the near future because it’s a blast creating them.
