Torgny, have you considered a slight posterization, reducing the number of colors in the picture?

I think this is an example of a picture that would really be enanced by posterization. I hope you don't mind me messing around with it a little.

That is a great enhancement. Far out. I must confess I didn´t know what the word ment but I suppose this is a sufficient definition:

Photography. a printing process in which all tone values of a negative are reduced to a few and the tonal separation negatives produced are printed at different exposure levels on a high-contrast film so that a set of flat tones results.

Somewhat similar to cell shading in computer graphics?

Looks great. I´m trying to remember the scene. The green from the bicycle, but where did the blue come from?

Thanks

Torgny

I use the Gnu Image Manipulation Program, which has a posterization function that lets one directly specify the number of colors.

I imagine something like that is available in photoshop.

Give it a shot.

Great. Open source.
GIMP 2.3.19 Development Release2007-07-25
Should I download this version or wait for the 2.4 version? What´s your operating system, Linux? Is it buggy in XP?

I use the 2.2 version, which works fine for me. There is also something called GIMPShop, which is a little more comfortable for those who like Photoshop, but I like the original.

It is a little less user-friendly. Interestingly, O'Reilly has a manual for it. And there are numerous tutorials on the net.

I'm running it on XP. There are a few interestingbehaviors, but nothing that causes me any problems.
