Creative Interpretation: Reflecting in Egypt

I took this in Egypt last month and thought it would be a good candidate for some creative interpretation:

Re: Creative Interpretations

Thanks for the play Hawkeye.

Trying a watercolour and not put too much detail back in.

Newbie attempt...

In Photo Shop Elements, two layers of Akvis Sketch, followed by Element's Dry Brush and Colored Pencil (Underpainting).

Re: Creative Interpretations

Not quite a painting, but wanted to see what Dynamic Photo would do on this photo.

Here's the result. No other software or plugins used.

Re: Creative Interpretations

i like this photo also, but i felt there was too much there that wasnt very important to the shot, so, crop time.

i also added a usm 4/100/5 and then re-lit the whole thing.

so, not very 'photo art' i suppose; more like photo enhance.
