Forgot the Blend modes.

And it makes quite a difference. So here they are :

1. with Color Range, Lasso and Magic Wand, I've selected four parts (sky, mountains, water and boat) and put them on different layers.

2. on the sky layer (blend mode - Normal) : used Adjustment layers to get the color and contrast : Hue/Saturation, Levels, Brightness/Contrast.

3. on the mountains (blend mode - Normal) : just Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer.

4. on the water layer (blend mode - Normal) : dup layer + Anisotropic (blend mode - Normal) ; dup this layer + Dry Brush (blend mode - Color Dodge at 57%) ; Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer.

5. on the boat layer : dup layer + Solarize (blend mode - Overlay at 50%) ; dup this layer + Chalk & Charcoal (blend mode - Color Burn at 50%).

6. flattened image.

7. added Levels and Hue/Saturation adjustment layers on top of all that to get a bit more contrast.

Hi, Andrew. I like the colors, too. As for the filters, I had used Anisotropic + Dry Brush on water before but the combination that surprised me is the Solarize filter (that I never had used before) plus the Chalk & Charcoal filter. They give more volume to the boat. I was trying lot's of things and got lucky with this one.

Where's that darn lighthouse when you need it????

This started out to be a watercolor, but it went terribly, terribly wrong. So I ended up with our little boat out at sea in a bad storm.

Great submissions from everyone! Great mini-challenge!

Just totally experimenting with Mike Finn's newest action toy, DigiDoodle (available FREE HERE) and Edger from the same action set.

This is more fun than finger painting!
