ok Trixi ... here it is my raw untouched image for the pileup idea that Ji suggested. Can't wait to see all the wonderful improvements the talented photographers here could make to it!!!

you're right, I'm very curious about the whole thing will come....

I wrote to Ji (the man behind the idea) to follow up the pileup thing...and then next days I'll post a broadacst to amplify the project.......

Here is my pile up too!

My approach.
1 crop to place figure to the left reaching right. Careful to keep the round shape to the right.
2. lighten light facing side of figure to emphasis light source. Darken shadow side of figure. Add extra light to the those
2.dup layer and motion blur 2nd layer
3.erase through 2nd layer to place figure back into focus. blur edges to blend figure with background (could have done a better job here)
4. color reduce the read cast. really played with it to get what I wanted
5. levels on the dark side
6. increased canvas size .3 and colored edge black for framing.
Thats all folks.

dear guys, I have forgot to explain that we have to use at least two tags for making pileups!

The first tag is pileup and you have to use for each pileup
then, you have a secondary tag, that is a tag that have to end with pileup
for example "princetownpileup"

the secondary tag is specific for each pileup

I added this secondary tag to this and other works.....

I'm really sorry, I forgot to explain how I did my pile up :P

1 – Isolate the central red parts with the Magic Wand Tool
2 – Click on Inverted selection
3 – Put an Atmosphere Photographic Filter, then an Halo Photographic Filter on your selection
4 – Click again on Inverted section and work on the internal red parts with a Photocopy Photography Filter and an Atmosphere Photographic Filter. Then increase red color through Variations.
5 – Reselect and use Photographic Filter in order to darken the silhouette
6 – Apply Sprayed Strokes Filter
7 – Patiently work with the Smudge Tool to regularize the silhouette’s outline, to give the “flame” aspect to the other central elements and to create the smudged effect in the red external contour
8 – When you’re satisfied with the effect, the final step is applying the Poster Edges Filter, and it’s done!

Here is my experiment
Hope you enjoy it and special thanks to antonella for her great pic!!!

Mine :-)

How I did it^^

Duplicated, blurred the layer and set on Division. Adjusted bright/contrast and colors, more red and yellow. Sharpened face details. Added a scratched texture and set on Multiplication, adjusted visibility, bright and contrast. Changed colors again, blurred the back tunnel and around the avi. Sharpened face details again, framed, signed :-)

here is my version

about photoshop:

I sharpened the photo, then copyed red layer in channels and set it above the photo in Color Dodge mode and enother copy of red channel only on the background in Vivid Light mode and made it a bit transparent, then I used contrast and levels (separately on the girl and on the background) to give it the right brightness and lights, also added Outer Glow effect on the girl only, then I made copy of the original layer and used Radial blur on it and set the layer transparent, then I used Lens Flare effect on the main layer, saved this all in jpg and opened again, made a copy of the picture and erased background on the copy (leaving tunnel with the girl), used Outer Glow in Dissolve mode on it, saved all as 1 layer, blured it a bit with the tool and added Inner Glow as a frame.
That's it generally :)

for more technical questions feel free to ask me ^^
