Wow...I'm humbled (don't tell my wife I used the "H" word, she wouldn't let me hear the end of it)...you guys do some great work !!!

Well, since I'm on my humbled knees already, here's my entry.

Corel Photo Paint 9

1) Opened and copied image...worked on copy
2) Applied filter Texture - Stone
3) Saved image
4) Desaturate image
5) Applied filter Texture - Elephant Skin
6) Applied filter Creative - Frame
7) Restored color to certain areas of image using Clone From Saved, that is equivelent to History Brush in Photoshop
8) Applied Drop Shadow all the way around

It was a lot of fun working on the "Rowboat"...Thanks, Danny.

Oh WOW, AH! I like what you did with that picture! Restoring some of the color and the texture, it all works well together!

Jim, I know what you mean about #2 I really like that for some reason as well. I think I like the colours (Aussie spelling) and I like the "feel" of the picture. Well done.

Jim...

I'm with Sanda...the "colours" (love that spelling, can just hear that Aussie accent now !!!) in # 2 are fabulous.

The whole image has an "etheral" look to it.

Thumbs down

Awesome challenge with some really impressive results. There are some really creative approaches to the image.

Ahh... I couldn't resist trying my hand. I'm really into multiple smart blur/edge only layers lately. I added some texture, which I don't normally do. Seems to fit this image.

Cool

Very nice Mike
It has a quaint old fashioned post card look to it.

Hey, Mike:
Welcome to RetouchPRO!

Glad you found the site and especially this forum. We're always looking for creative and talented folks like you to jump into the pool with the rest of us.

I like what you did with this one. Texture looks most appropriate. Smart Blur / Edge Only is among my favorite effects. It can be used in many ways.

I'll probably be posting another in the mini series in the next day or so, but in the mean time by all means take a swipe at any of the other mini-challenges if you're so inclined.

Also, if you have a couple photo-art images you'd like to share, feel free to post 'em in the public gallery. (Main menu[top left], select Gallery and you're there.)

Again, welcome aboard. If you have any questions by all means send me personal mail (PM button below).

~DannyR~

Smile Version 1

After seeing all of the awesome images this morning, I had to clear time and take a shot at the rowboat challenge. Was a great way to spend a few hours while it rained most of the afternoon.

This version uses two different brush strokes to try and more closely simulate how an artist might do this image.

Great Fun
Earl

Version 2 (Home to Port)

This is a second version trying to simulate the way the dock etc might appear to a sailing vessel returning to port.

Danny.... is this image the classic lobster house from Rockport, Massachusetts? Looks just like it if not. Have a picture of it somewhere from before it was destroyed/rebuilt the last time.

Thanks for the great challenges and a place to have some fun with others of like interest.

Earl

I knew it was going to be good. I just didn't know it was going to be this good. Greatly appreciate your particiation. The strokes are wunderbar.

Hope you'll be able to play along it the future. Your entries will always be a highlight.

Thanks Danny, I enjoyed doing it. I need to try and spend a little time each week doing something like this to just have fun. I enjoy the photoshoots and other work, but this is real fun. The other people and their great ideas really make it a great learning experience.

Looking forward to more.

Earl

Thumbs down Rowboat on the dock

All these pictures are awesome. All have their own strong points. Serious or funny, looking old and not looking anything like a photo.
I am disturbed by the composition of the picture, however. The red shack is prominently in the center.
I decided that the boat should get the attention.
First I cropped the image to give prominence to the boat. Raised the resolution to 300.
I copied the background into a new layer. Using the art history brush (size 5) I brushed the whole picture giving me a blob of colors.
Then going over again, (brush size 2 or 3) this time as if I was painting (following the lines and contour of the objects).
I think I achieved somewhat a watercolor impression of the photo.
Lastly, I reduced the red color to around .70 (Level adjustment).
Reduced the file size then unsharp mask.

Wink By the numbers

Here's what it would look like if you bought it in a box.
Did any one of you use this?
I got my feet wet so to speak using these kind of kits.
Come on, fess up.
