Just Playing with Digital Filters

I recently re-visited a blog that hosts weekly digital challenges called:
Collage Obsession
Each week there is a new image posted and you get to play around with it. This week it was this vintage image of an Asian Advertisement.

Using ColorFX filters, some various extraction methods, altering the colors and layering images I created multiple versions of altered layouts but this version was my favorite.

Here is one more layout, that I took a step further and used solarization filters, cropped the image and this is what I got: I'm really not too sure if I like this-it might have to grow on me alittle. It does have some interesting texture happening.

I know we are two peas in a pod when it comes to anything Asian! I hope you will grab the image and play with it too! Have fun!

Very nice collages and I like the textures, something very Chinese. But most of all I love the fish.

Thank you for participating our challenge. :))

I have to blend out the words fascinating, enchanting and mesmerizing as well just to describe your blog.
I would be honored not only with a single visit but also with the possibility of having your name on our friend's group.
