    Is it over the top? absolutely!
    What does this have to do with photography? nothing.

    But... it's fun doing this. I am into Neon "photography". ;-)

    Wow!

    Peter, I've figured out your process.

    Step 1. Wait for a really dark night.

    Step. 2. Put the camera on a tripod, remove lens cap, punch up shutter B mode.

    Step 3. Grab half a dozen colored flashlights.

    Step 4. Dance very creatively in the dark. Light up the flashlights as needed.

    Step 5. Close the shutter.

    That's right, isn't it?

    Cheers, Jock

    I've seen this "effect" before. I forget the software, but it wasn't all rainbowed out. I thik it was a Nik plug-in called Fractalis? Peter, tell us your secrets

    I will do that. Jock is very close. ;-) But first 2 others:

    The trick is Topaz Glow. It is part of the Topaz suite. When I tried to work on a radio tower for a challenge, I saw the plugin and tried it. It has presets and quite some adjustment possibilities. I am intrigued by the code that must be behind this to turn digital data into these shapes and colors!

    I think the raven is just fabulous. Could be a logo for a band or a car. Love the intensity of the eye.

    Cheers, Jock

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I missed this thread until now. Pretty wild stuff? Looks sort of like the built-in Sony "watercolor" or "illustration" mode, but on acid. What sort of software lets you do this? And does it do it somewhat automatically or does it just give you tools that you've used to go in this direction?

    I like them, very interesting effect. I lost Topaz a long time ago in another hard drive crash and never replaced it. I'm a person who actually enjoys the editing process :)

    "wild" is the right expression. ;-)
    I do have the Topaz suite that includes a tool named "Topaz Glow". Although the presets suffice, you can tweak using sliders. Works intuitively and fast. I can't help it but I am having fun playing with the tool


    Thank you I admit: I enjoy the editing process too but it has to be fast. I don't like to play with brushes for hours.
