Wonderful nkollias. Although all of the others are superb and I like them very much, yours is truly a work of art in my book.

There are some fantastic approaches and variations on this subject. I'm just so blown away with the various techniques you folks come up with!
Here's my humble effort done in PhotoShop.

Duplicate the Background and did a Posterization Ajustment Layer. Set this layer to Hard Light. Ran Plastic Wrap, Diffusion and something else (gee, it's hard to remember!), Tweaked with a Curves AL then merged all.

Kiska, ditto what Duv said. In fact if I hadn't seen his post, that is exactly what I was going to write.

Hey, Swampy...

Welcome to the Photo-art forum. For one rooted into the vector side of illustration, you've definitely got the touch for this sort of thing.

re: "hard to remember"
I know what you mean... It takes a little time to get into that. Some people (like myself) duplicate layers as we go and name them accordingly. Others refer to History Palette states or record actions. Different strokes for different folks.

Anyway, keep the arty stuff coming. It's great to see new techniques.

Thanks for the welcome, Danny. It is a major leap from splines and beziers to pixels. Boggles my mind what some of you folks do!
