The above is the pic I started from, cropped the center, put a lace layer over top with a gradient and something (hehe). I am not real sure of what I did, maybe a render? Then I desaturated and voila. I enjoy doing this, it gets me to play around with photoshop and see what I can do.

Added a threshold adjustment layer above the original, merged down, deleted the white area, added a gradient layer underneath, merged down again. Then I used the cut out filter and added a slight texture.
Lets see what you can do with threshold.

I started with a circle, used the lasso tool to make the shapes of the rays and filled with color. duplicated the layer, lowered the opacity and rotated it slightly. Added a gradient layer. I used the paint daubs filter (I think) I play so much I sometimes forget. Underneath the sun I added a blue layer and then a cloud filter with the blending mode changed to soft light.
This is my sun. First I made a new layer. Then used the gradient to make the yellow/orange/red. Made another layer. Used the lasso tool to make the shape. Inversed the layer and cleared it to leave the shape. I played around with the hue/saturation and added an outer glow. Another layer and I used the cloud filter, and there you have it. That was fun!
