About the Image(s)

I needed a 'music' related image for a competition, so I revisited a folk week from 2016 and found Original 1. I've done quite a lot with images of the Boggarts Breakfast dancers, but never the band. So to put that right, I duplicated the layer and used Topaz Studio 2 with effect 'Abstraction 2', then used a layer mask to bring back the band and stamped up to give Original 2.
I duplicated Original 2 and applied a radial blur, then dragged the layer mask onto the duplicate layer. Stamped up again to give Original 3.
Next I duplicated the Original 3 layer and applied Topaz Studio 2 with effect 'Burning Dust'. The mask was dragged onto this layer to bring back the band from Original 3. This layer was duplicated again (which duplicated the mask too) and applied another radial blur. I used Luminosity mode at reduced opacity then stamped up to give the final image.
Just a bit of fun playing with masks and Studio 2. Now it's down to the judges!
