My contribution for The Sunday Challenge 'Car'.

Soundtrack, Jon Hopkins - Vessel (Four Tet remix): soundcloud.com/four-tet/jon-hopkins-vessel-four-tet-remix

Because they are "holy cows" ;-)


On notes you see the original for this image, and another version I made for Not The Sunday Challenge (NTSC) group.

Here I used the "classic" 'Polar Coords' technigue on GIMP to create an orb for one layer. Then I used 'Lens Distortion' effect to get another layer with distorted image for the car logo. Finally I used 'Lighten Only' layer mode to combine the layers.

Au Cœur..., beverleyplaya, .t.a.o.n., Gudrun and 34 other people have particularly liked this photo

Thank you Karen =) It all started from the talk about golf... ;-)

And yes, I had difficulties to decide which one to post here and there... Then I thought the very first version deserves to become posted here. I did also other versions... ;-)

"Became Volkswagen's bestseller in 2002; 30,000,000 by mid June 2013 in six generations." ;-)

Only Toyota Corolla have been sold more: "The 40 million milestone was reached in July 2013. Despite this, the model type has been different over the years."

Magnífico trabajo, el resultado es fabuloso.
Gracias por explicar como lo has hecho ;))

Sami Serola has replied to Paz
Thank you Paz =)

It is already shortly explained on caption ;-)

But here some more instructions for the orb: www.ipernity.com/blog/298501/742131

For the 'Lens Distortion', see this, and notice the language option on top bar: docs.gimp.org/en/plug-in-lens-distortion.html
With that tool I especially play with the 'Main' by moving it to the left. But do notice also the effect of X/Y.shifts.

And finally, the idea of using 'Lighten only' -layer mode was to blend the lighter parts of both images together. You may wish to try also other modes ;-)

Thank you Lutz =)

If I recall right, on tablet and mobile phone touch screen you need to press long to access the notes used here on Ipernity images, to avoid just opening the main image large.

Sami Serola has added
Yes, press long somewhere on the image to activate the notes. Then click one of the notes to see what it is for. This works at least on Android phones and running Chrome browser.
