This is a pic I pulled off the internet of a town I used to live in, there are a few different versions of it so there may be a larger version. All I did was google image- glennallen alaska... my boss has a laser engraving machine, and so I want to give this image to him, and he will burn it into the lexan side of the comp. case I'm getting for my new build

Since the original JPG had a lot of compression, I just used the blur plus sharpen tools to make it more like the original, then when I was done, I flattened the image, and placed an edge sharpen on it. It created artifacts, which was what I was going for, since the original image had tonnes.

I think I could have probably cleaned up the left wire a bit better as I took away a bit too much of the cloud that was there, but it looks alright, and not unnatural or anything. I could have another go at that bit if you like.

Haha nice. I can still see the detailing though. DFor instance, I can just about make out the poles, and the wires

How the heck did you do that though?
