CJ, love that soft sunny look! Raven, your second one looks almost like stained glass...lovely.

Like, CJ, I thought the shade made it look too cool, and with the subzero temps it's cool enough around here, so I am going to think summer.

David - when I lived in Puerto Rico I knew a girl that had never seen snow. Went to college Georgia Tech and an instructor had to turn out a class when it started to snow because she got so excited! I am suprised that you did not do a version with snow!

Phyllis - as always a great job

Raven -- after Phyllis pointed it out, I see how your 2nd one looks like a stained glass cell -- wouldn't that be a lovely stained window!

Found a couple pretty neat arty actions here:
http://www.digitalfocus.net/downloads.htm

This image is based on one of them (Watercolor portrait) + a little fine tuning afterwards, namely with a bit of blurring topped with plus a Smart Blur / Edge only inverted layer (based on the original image) softened with Diffuse > Anisotropic faded to about 70%. Hue/Saturation and levels.

Added "frame by Schwartzie" action.

Very nice image, Ravenmd. Reminded me of a trip to South Florida I took in the late 80s.

Bubba:

RE: Action link. You bet; glad to share.

Ravenmd:

I was so inspired by the results you achieved on first entry (great colors and definition), I attempted to recreate them -- and then applied a few twists of my own.

* Duplicated original BG
* To the duplicate, applied Smart Blur / Edge Only; inverted results and set opacity to Soft Light
* Ran Diffuse / Anisotropic against the Edge layer to soften edges a bit
* Duplicated Edge layer and ran Sprayed strokes filter to give the edges a little texture; applied Unsharp Mask to enhance the effect
* Embossed, set blend mode to Overlay to apply the textured lines and achieve a little depth
* Added a layer filled with 50% and applied Texturizer/Sandstone filter; lowered opacity to 40% to let some of the texture through
* Hue/Sat and Levels adjustment layers to bring out colors and contrast
* Framed

Cheers!
~Danny~
