Howjudoit?

Interested in how you maniped this. That is if you don't mind sharing your technique. 8-)

It's very sharp, but with a smoothed look that I really like.

You people are just so dang gooooood!

I wanted to see if I could get a water color "look" without using artistic filters in PS. First thing was a crop.

After making a quick mask of the foreground boat, I duplicated the original layer and applied a slight lens blur and some glass distortion to the background areas with an inverted mask applied to this layer.

Duplicated the original again and applied similar distortions to the boat. Added some yellow to the reflection too. At this point it was looking pretty good, but I wanted a "sponge" effect without using the sponge filter so... I made a new layer on top of the stack, rendered some black/white clouds, added some noise and a Distortion-->Wave and a gausian blur then set this layer to Overlay blend mode. It really added to the overall sky and water areas with a more "strokey" smudgy blending without actual brush strokes.

Added the frame with Extenis PhotoFrame.

Thanks for the challenge!

Hi there, restev, welcome to RetouchPRO.

The technique is becoming my standard - so I think it's time to change .

1) Photoshop - generally enhance the image (better contrast, colours etc.);
2) Painter - Cloned with a streaky oily brush;
3) Photoshop - high-pass, emboss and / or lighting effects to emphasize the brush strokes.

Thai Islands

Great job everyone. What a pleasure to look at all of the beautiful interpretations. I thought I would give it a try.

I used Painter and started with a clone, added paper texture, added glass distortion, and then added more surface texture. Back to PS and did some hue/sat adjustments. The tutorial for this heavy texture/impressionist look was in the Wow Painter IX book.

Loveable stuff, everyone! ... @Duv - Wooooooo!

at first, some lighting effects, to push the island more back and add feeling of sun on left, then bit of dodging/burning, increased contrast on front ship and mountain, and then a bit of simplifier on the mountain to make it even more rough-like...

cheers
