Aground

Seems it's been awhile since we had a boat to artify. To remedy that, here's one my cousin found parked near the shore of the North Sea in Germany. I expect it's going to require some retouching/manipulation prior to artifying, but that's part of the fun of it all, innit?

If you'd like a bigger/higher quality version (253K) to start from, look here.

Dramatic watercolor.

Enjoyed the challenge Lonnie and thanks for the play. Here's the complete hirez version. Attached is a reduced sized crop. Used GIMP's Rounded Edge Gradient map set to Value, Flaming Pear's Mr. Contrast, and Various Xero Filters (Serious Fog and Soft Mood to name a few) to get the effect seen.

Re: Aground

Here is my version, I tried a watercolor look.
You can really pull a lot of color out of this photo.

Re: Aground

Some awesome work here.

I too did a watercolor interpretation. Prep included straightening (skewed horizons are a real pet peeve with me), cropping for composition (mostly to affect moving off the shoreline a bit), cloning out ropes (wanted an abandoned, untethered, adrift look), curves for contrast/luminosity and hue/sat adjustments to liven the colors. Next was my 5 layer watercolor technique and finally, a burnt edge treatment.
