I wanted to see a refection of the boat in the water.

PhotoShop CS2

1. Enlarged the canvas to accomodate the reflection
2. Selected the entire photo and copied the selection to a new layer then moved the copy below the original.
3. Transformed the copy by dragging the top transform handle "through" itself vertically. to create the reflection then skewed the copy slightly. Cloned in the missing areas of the resulting skew.
4. Did some distortions to the copy
5. Ran a minor lighting effect
6. Cropped the entire image to remove excess canvas.

Thanks, Cassidy :-)

I did this one very quickly, but as I look at it now, I probably should have done a little more clone work on some of the "land mass" areas that would not reflect so far off shore.

Cheryl H. Nice Chalk effect.
Vijayan: I like your second effect, cool distortion/wave effect.
lkroll: creative use of oil, impressionist et al, how many softwares do you really have !
Cazubi: Buzzed effect seems cooler than photobobbie one.
Swampy: Cool reflectios in the water, quite realistic too.

Since I think, that WaterColor is usually bright and colorful, I did this entirely in Painter 9 without any adjustments of any kind. The kids love these bright images.

1. Open Image in Painter: File > Open
2. Clone Image. File > Clone.
3. Lift Canvas to watercolor layer. Layers > Lift Canvas to Watercolor Layer.
4. Then Layers > Wet Entire Water Color Layer.
5. Then Paint with WaterColor Brush, Wash Camel variant while still Wet from 4 at size 26 opacity 16, feature 5.3
6. After you have painted in 5 very lightly, you do not need more than 2 passes over entire area; then switch brushes to Watercolor: Splatter Water variant and just dab a little spots here and there over the entire canvas to give it a water drippage effect. You do not need to do this effect, if you do not like it.
7. Now dry the layer, Layers > Dry WaterColor Layer.
8. The Water Color Layer is always in Gel Blend Mode. Change that to Color Mode through Layers Palette. This changes it to a colorful mode.
9. To add a texture to it and muck it up a bit, go to paper textures and pick French Water Color Palette from the Tool Menu. Then go to Effects > 3D Brush Strokes and here I increased softness to 20 % or more, as I like things mucked up nicely. The larger the number the more funky the look. (Here you can fine tune all the elements the way you want).
10. You now have a colorful watercolor like effect.

Used cutout on low opacity, clarified the whole picture and encreased saturation, used AHB on Wow - AH oil.

I have seen mention of Danny's photobobbie action. Is that available somewhere? I like the results obtained with this action on the boat! thanks in advance.

Re: PHOTO ART: Mini-challenge #142 – Sailing Ship

After some playing around I ended up with a somewhat worn/rustic/aged look.

1. made a background with the fiber filter
2. added a layer with the wood pattern overlay
3. added a layer with the boat and adjusted the opacity to around 60%
3. to get rid of the purple background but keep my boat's rustic color, added another boat layer, adjusted it to a desaturated blue, knocked out the boat, blended at 100% in color mode
4. added a sketch layer (duplicated original image and desaturated, duplicated again and inverted, used color dodge blending mode, applied gaussian blur) - these layers are merged in the screenshot
5. adjusted sketch layer opacity
6. added a clouds filter on top, adjusted to 40% opacity in color burn blending mode
7. made slight adjustments to the curves to get the final image
