Here's my interpretation. Note I cropped the attachment so more detail would be visible.

I'm working on the tutorial, which I'll post in a day or so. When I do, I'll update this post with a link.

Note: I'm not eligible for the contest. I just wanted to play along this time.

Got to take a shot at this one. A watercolor interpretation using the Xero Caravaggio filter (4,2,0,0), and painted on a white layer with a Reveal All Mask and photoshop watercolor brushes.

Very (should say extremely) tired tonight.

So I got a little lazy and used Van Gogh on a duplicate layer set to Hard Light. I duplicated the Hard Light layer again and flattened. Filters are cool.

PS: I did add canvas on just the light areas.

Nice picture My version in Deep Paint with the rain cloner.
I like your watercolor version Alan, I never thought of using Caravaggio for a watercolor effect, looks nice.

My Attemp

Howdy ... my attempt here to make something artistic from my Sailboat photo ... its a lot easier to push a button than to make something like all of you have with my photo!! Thanks for the ideas ...

I used Photoshop, Drybrush 2,10,2, then Hue 11,42,9, then Palette Knife 4,3,10 and then a little adjustment with the Levels. Here goes ... Jim

Nice work everyone. Can't wait to get back on the water. Have to wait another 2 months here in Minnesota.

I drew inspiration from Swampy's great post here

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...8&page=3&pp=15

changed the facet to smart blur for this one and used a different pattern (looks much better bigger )

I thought I would try a new techniqe I watched on the PhotoShop TV podcast involving making selections, copy to a new layer and set a bevel or shadow style. I varied slightly by distorting and reshaping some of the selections.

Make a selection, copy to a new layer, apply a style (bevel and emboss for exampl). New selections the same way until the boat subject was covered. Merge all these selections onto a new layer.

I then applied one of my favorite PhotoShop Filters, Pixelate->facet about 10-12 times to make the boat less like a photo, but still keeping some sharp detail. At this point I added more canvas and inked the boat grahic and background and centered them better on the page.

I created a medium blue layer with canvas texture over the background graphic and set the blend mode to soft light. Added a curves adjustment layer to bring the make the photo image a little darker. Merged these layers and made a rectangle marquee selection into a new layer then copied them to a new layer.

I then added an Extensis Photo Frame to the textured background with the background of the frame set to transparent. In Photoshop I added some bevel and emboss to the frame that gave the effect of raising it off the page.

Set another texture layer. This time in a parchment tone under the blue texture. Merged all and added a stroke and signature to the result.
