Among the PS7 default actions (within the Textures set) is one called "Pastel Glass Tiles," which yielded some interesting results. This .atn was used to generate two layers (A, C) in this version. (See next post for Layers palette screen shot).

A second action, "djr-Tom Nelson inspired" (which is among the .atns that can be downloaded HERE) was used as the middle (B) layer of this trio.

Layers G, H and I are edges and frames. Framing and edging can be done to suit.

Phyllis:

Yours could be a promo for a theme park. Nice blending of the images to make them look matched.

Phil:

You just keep getting better... marvelous variations.

Frank:

I'm still waiting for that creativity transplant. Brilliant (as in, ditto what Phyllis said) and awesome. You continue to show all of us how to "break out" of a rut.

David:

I think we've got you hooked on this photo-art stuff. How's the Photoshop transition going?

Art:

Nice combination of lines and background. What did you do to get the fine lines?

Chuck:

Nice of you to give Phyllis a saturated version! I liked both myself.

Steve (Trimoon):

Thanks again for sharing your picture with us. You inspire us again.

Very nice effect Danny, I will have to try it.

Danny, Have you hgad and problems with Photoshop 7. Every once in a while it goes hay wire. I get verticle and horrizontal lines running like a mathmatical program and all of a sudden it stops and everything clears up. I cant figure it out.

Phil: Have had (knock on wood) zero problems w/PS7; sounds like hardware (monitor, connections, card?) to me. - Danny

Thanks Danny, you're very kind! If I had a brain cell to spare, you'd be welcome to it! I'm in the market for some myself. As I've said previously, I've been doing this for less than a year now and this is a great learning medium for me When I did the book with Jim's? granddaughter, I'd never done a book before, and similarly, this last one with the torn page effect was a first for me. I'd loved to be able to claim that they are all my own inspirations (to live up to your "creativity bit) but really I'm just gleaning (stealing?) ideas from reading other sites, sometimes almost direct copies, other times I do modify them a fair bit. Most of all I'm an avid follower of Rule 4, I think it was 4. Enjoy it!
Thanks
Frank

As I tried to do this one without looking at anyone else's efforts, I found it rather difficult to get something that looked like "art". Anyway, this is what I think is the best of my efforts.

Al, looks great...the charcoal effect is especially good at bringing out texture in the trees, as well as the ripples in the water.

I tried an oil painting. Used cutout textured with render-lighting, distort-->frosted glass, displace-->stucco, and finally used render-lighting on an overlaid texture from Andromeda Techtures set to soft light. At each step after cutout I mostly erased away the waviness on the boat, dock, and vertical masts etc. so the picture wouldn't lose its form. I added a gray cloudy sky by cloning part of the water and stretching it with transform.
