I downloaded some useful plugins yesterday and used 3 on this image...
Contrast Mask, Local Contrast Enhancement and Selective Saturation. Useful for doing postwork on photos.

Bottom Layer enhanced using the above filters.
Duped BL
L2 - Buzz Simplifier
L2 - Impressionist/DJR Smudge
L2 - Artistic Brushstrokes(PSP8.1)

Thanks for the photo!

couldn't resist

had to endulge myself after reading the post's title

copied the background twice, then ran the chrome filter on layer 3, set it to overlay and reduced the opacity to 50
ran fresco on layer 2, set the layer to lighten and the opacity to 75
added a few things, then stamped the layers to one and use the spatter brushstrokes

I think it turned out rather nice.

Wish I was there instead of in this 30 degree weather!

Started playing with this one & went a different direction than I thought I would, but it's kinda interesting, so here it is...

1-dup orig layer & adj levels - then filter "swap shop" to change coloring to this orange-y

2-dup that layer - impressionist filter: crayon, lino chatter, set to darken

3-dup last layer - filter chrome, set to soft light & lowered opacity to taste

4-added texture & borders

Here's a link to the "swap shop" filters...plus a ton more, if anyone's interested:

Actually, here's the more direct link, but the other is good for exploring other filters too...

Agreed.

Welcome to the Photo-art forum. Nice touch on the text-work, too.

First used that watercolor technique from the March newspaper from Corel.

http://www.corel.com/painterix/commu...?trkid=tpc0105

The March one has this tutorial..
http://www.corel.com/painterix/train...id=tpc0305tip2


Then cloned in Painter 8 ...using both chalk & oil brushes ..from the Wow collection. After cloning.. continued painting with different colors to shade & add defination.

Tropical Night

Adjusted the Ue/Saturation to get the pink sky.

All I need now is a bottle of Malibu
