Here's the dark version (no levels adjustment in beginning and no hue/saturation adjustments at the end)

Vikki, your rocks look like what I wanted mine to look like but was unable to achieve with what I have available or with what I tried using anyway. The waves and such turned out like I had in my mind, but i was never pleased with the look of the rocks. I haven't tried duplicating your steps yet, but I suspect that it's the lack of PE on my part that might make the crucial difference just looking at what you wrote for the first pic.

I shall work on it some more - there has to be a non-PE way to achieve that look.

To me, that looks more like the northern Pacific coast. The S. Calif. beaches that I've seen (San Diego, LA, etc.) seemed to me to be almost void of rocks and spray like that. I think that's why I love the Pacific NW, because of the great, craggy, wild coasts...

I really do like yours though, Vikki. It looks incredibly like an oil painting (which I happen to like the smell of, btw)

Here's one I've been messing with for a few days now.

fugitive: I live in New York, Niagara Falls, to be exact. So you can imagine I've seen some water hitting the rocks - big time!
Although I have lived in California (Redwood City).
But really, what inspired me was this artist's paintings of Niagara: (click on the image for a larger view)

(I'll have to figure out how to add that shine)

Blacknight & digi: I do think it's the PE filter that helps out. There has to be some info on that, somewhere out on the net. Otherwise, something like Painter could probably be used.

Some ramblings......When I do these simulated, natural media things, I don't want it to look like a "computer" generated image. I very rarely, if ever limit myself to one filter. Most of the techniques I've used have been a process of overlapping various filters, fading them, and disquising them. I try to analyse the natural medium for the qualities that are characteristic to that particular style, and then try to duplicate them. For some reason, I don't consider it original or unique unless I've had a major impact in the process, and added something myself.

Jak: That frame is awesome! (but, I too was distracted by it)

Yeah, I know...

But if you go into those galleries that sell oil paintings, you always see them displayed on easels in these huge HONKIN frames with little canvas inserts - so that's what I did..

I used the oil emboss filter from Photo Brush on this image. I have been trying to duplicate it in Photoshop but I have not had any luck. Anyone have any ideas?
