I really like this photo-art, especially the Nautical Art. Anyone know how to get this effect?

Looks like cross processing of slides (processed in neg process).

Could also be a PS plugin that does the same thing, or it could be selective colour change (select a colour or areas and do a selective variations on it to make the sea orange, but not ALL the sea).

colors looked pumped, you could also select specfic areas and change the hue via a mask and lastly it looks like the pics have been using surface blur...and like Fluff...he may just be using a filter or an action.

Try taking your background image, making a copy, using the shadow/highlight feature to your desire. After that is done, use adjustment layers to pump the color. You can use hue/sat, selective color, levels, a copy of the layer set to a different blend mode, or... your imagination. Also, some of the filters or plugins may give you the results you desire. Try posterize and adjust the colors that yields. In other words, the results you desire can be achieved a lot of ways. Don't be afraid to experiment.
