Just catching up with reading threads, your effect is really wonderful, I saw it on #'s 58, 62 and 63, really nice.
On your instructions, what do you mean by "outline with 2 layer b/w blur dodge method" ?? I am sure it is explained in another thread but I have not run across it yet.
Thanks. That outline method has become a standard, so I didn't include the steps. It's probably here in the "best of photo art" techniques that Danny put together, but in case you can't find it, here's what you do to get the outline:

1. Dupe layer and make b/w...desaturate will do in this case.
2. Dupe b/w layer and invert.
3. Set blend mode on top layer to color dodge.
4. Gaussian blur top layer just slightly till outline shows up.
5. Merge two b/w layers.
6. Darken outline: Either dupe and set to multiply to darken outline, then merge, or use levels to darken.

There you have your outline. You can now use it to make a sketch or illustration or emphasized edges or as step one in my abstract style...many many uses for this basic outline.

I didn't think I could add anything to the original photo as it was presented. So many great submissions, I'd certainly just be repeating someone else's work.

So, I did a quick and dirty pineapple stencil on handmade paper. That's what I was going for, at least.

Pineapple works for me, Amanda...

Now all we need are a few Pina Coladas!

Did you hand-draw the fruit here or... ?

Oops, I should have said in my post. I isolated one of the pineapples from the upper right of the picture and used that. Blowing it up large enough to use blew out some of the detail, thus lending itself to this hand-drawn, stencilish look.

And a pina colada sounds great!!! Got any little paper umbrellas, or should we ask Phyllis to draw some for us?

Amanda, love how you handled that pineapple! Great job! And good idea to use just PART of a pic...gotta remember that approach.

Enjoying the many versions, for this one; made a focal point, applied a paint effect using Impression, used an edging.

The transform tool is an amazing piece of work. Here I stopped it just mere nanoseconds before completion.
