Motion Blur then masked boys to remove blur followed by merging all layers to new copy before running the unsharp mask

this stuff is just way too addictive!

ok, the first of these is a simple charcoal with a blend mode of luminance to the background.

the next is a duping the background again and adding a brushstrokes layer with another blend of luminance over the charcoal and then copy merging those and pasting as a new layer.

and the last is duping the background again and doing a colored pencil with another luminance blend. then i copy merged this one and pasted as a new layer below the last copy merge/new layer and blended those with a hue mode.

boy, trying to keep all that straight is weird

Pretty cool Craig.

Side note; I stopped giving precise steps long ago just for that very same reason. I do so many subtle adjustments and smudges that it makes it too much work to explain; I'm a doer, not an explainer.

lk,

and another amen to that! we've got to get these software writers to put an extension in these file types that remembers all the steps within the image file itself and that others can access and read while they look at the pictures.

Would probably not fit the 100K limit though Craig.

Duped original,Ran curves on duplicate, selected the players and ball from background; Filter: Distort-Diffuse Glow (Graininess-9/Glow-6/ClearAmt-15 guesstimate),Faded DG filter to taste,Copied working layer -- tried a few layer blends -- liked Overlay,Ran a bit of GBlur,Added some noise and ran Filter:Brush Strokes-Angled Strokes,Ran Filter: Brush Strokes - Spatter,Changed Layer Blend from Overlay to Luminosity -- liked this more abstract quality,Made merged copy layer, Ran Radial Blur - Zoom 16% on merged layer and set layer blend to overlay,lowered layer opacity to 70%--stopped keeping track about here -- added layers, changed layer blends, spherized the ball and put on several layers, spherized the players and ran zoom blur on their layer. Kept trying to emphasize the movement and/or the colors -- changed mind several times about which and then tried to do both again... There's a bit of postered edges, and even a layer of halftones...

It's an experiment.

Extracted the boys
Cloned out the ref
Lens blur on the background layer with a gradient mask
Oops. Blurry boys bled out from behind sharp, extracted boys. Undo lens blur.
Cloned some surrounding image into boys on background layer
Again with the lens blur.
This resulted in first attachment.

Then...
On the background: Impressionist/DJR muckup 2M

On the boys:
Impressionist/DJR muckup 2M (modified somewhat)

Over that: Impressionist/Chalk rough textured abstract (modified a bit)

Over that: Impressionist/Pointillist embossed daubs (modified quite a lot - used a sort of splotchy brush instead of the round one, changed sizes, etc.)

Fiddled with layer opacities until it looked good.
Bumped saturation a bit.

Haven't been around in awhile so I had to have a run at this one.

Sainta must have thought I was a GOOD BOY this year cause he had a Wacom Table under the tree for me and I've been trying to learn Photoshop Elements since getting the table. I've been using PSP v8 ever since it can on the market so I already new a little of what I was in for. Boy what a learning curve.

Ok on to what I did Hmmmm keep in mind I'm new to photoshop so I may not get all the terms right. I did a color sketched effect made a couple of dupl. layer added some noise then bumped up the saturation a little on the other layers I started changing the blind modes and working with opacity for each layer till I had the look I wanted. Next came the Matte I had worked a tutorial night before last or maybe it was late last night and applied what I had learned from it to this image. I'm not much for adding mattes or frames to image but I thought what the heck it's all I can do!!! LOL

Keep in mind I've only been working with PSE for 5 or 6 days so it's not much. Maybe you guys and gals can help teach me something? Think so?

Did a simple one, as this soccer picture is awesome !

Extracted the background, and did a slight shading, and that looked good enough !
