Love all the renditions of this pic here, but have to single Garazon out to say "stunning"

Van Gogh does Degas.

No way; just having some more fun with my Van Gogh Impressionist preset.

i too thought garazon's was amazing. so, i can only hope he'll forgive me for doing what i did. i dont normally take another's art and alter it and i certainly dont mean to imply that mine is better or his is less by this. i simply took his as if it were the original posting here and worked it like we would other pieces. i kept looking at his rendition and looking and the more i looked i kept seeing other 'things'. i simply attempted to add in those other 'things'.

so, if you wish, garazon, i'll remove my version of your version and no questions or squabbles about it. just p.m. me and it's gone

i basically did three things here. i added the water with the 'flood' plugin and colored it a bit.
i altered the lighting with 'illumination effects' in psp 10.
and i cropped the image down to roughly an 8 x 10 aspect.

and again, please understand that this came about from enjoying YOUR rendition.

Watercolored Ink

Here's another take on this picture. Done in Photoshop using smart blur for edges and Dry Brush for color.
Just wonderful renditions so far! Chance - I think yours is my favorite so far.

No good

I admit it i couldn't come up with anything for this thread (even though i really wanted to do something as it is one of my favorite topics )
You have all amazed me with your renditions They are all excellent but i do think along with a few other people Garazon's submission is excellent

Thanks

Well I have to say thanks for all the compliments, it is much appreciated. Sometimes things hit ya and when I first saw this one I knew what I wanted to do with it. Hardest part was trying to get the color right so that it would match the background, I think it could be better, but I was starting to get aggravated!

Thanks again all for the nice words, I feel honored especially when the words come from those whose abilities are way beyond mine. and I see many that I like more than mine, Chance, yours is superb IMO

Craig, no problem from me on what ya did. I've got this vision now after seeing the water, to put them on a small deserted island with the ocean as a background, of course there will have to be a moon in it!

Craig - thanks so much and you are probably right about the cropping. Loved your watery rendition of Garazon's stunning moon version. I think the collective creative juices are flowing in 2006.

Everyone seems drawn to the lights/shadows of this image, as I was.

Cropped heavily to put emphasis on the couple, then did Polar Coord. before and after Crystalize, then added layer blends and lighting effects to intensify the contrasts...
