I like it, Bob. When I first looked, I saw three images of the bicycle and wondered how you did that. However, as I looked more closely, I saw that the entire image appears three times.

I'm guessing you did the initial artistic rendering of the photo and then duplicated it on two additional layers. You then adjusted the transparency of the two new layers and then offset them somehow. Lastly you merged the layers.

This is all speculation since I never learned much about layer.

I like this, too, and it's not really my kind of thing. Several times I've seen people post really nicely processed pictures with this type of effect but I never have any success when I've tried it. I think it must take a certain eye and touch, one that I don't have. I admire anyone who manages to pull it off as well as you have here.

Curious minds want to know. How did you do this?

Thanks for all the positive pcomments... Cal got it right... One image, edge enhancement, desaturated a bit, then duplicated and three layers combined at roughly 25% blend in Paimtshop Pro. I've done a number of these; there is no formula, each image gets the treatment it seems to need.

Here is another. The attempt is to suggest movement...
