Creative Interpretations: Boats Aground

Photo by C. Beauche. Kind of a different approach to photographing boats, I thought.

Ship ahoy!

Danny--that's an interesting effect. I'm not so sure about the sky, but it looks great on the rest of the image.

Working on a new mix. Make 2 dups of the background.

On the bottom layer.

Create this stack in buzz
simplifier 1--100
brightness and contrast around 20 each
simplifier 2--remove 50

on the same layer, impressionist detailed rough texture (custom setting) followed by fantastic machine's paint engine--curved brush. Fade curved brush to 65%

On the upper layer, in buzz, load the sketch 1 stack. Reduce the remove to around 100 and set the brightness and contrast sliders to around 20. I usually also do image--adjustments--brightness and contrast around 20 each after buzz runs. Set the blending mode to overlay and reduce opacity slightly. Optional--run distort--glass around 1 and 4

Danny, glad you could use my tip.

Cheryl, I like your use of Buzz in combination with Impr.
......
I was debating on whether to post this or not, and now I can't even remember what I did

Oh well....

Boats Aground

I took the image and ran it through Picture Man's Hand Drawing, Then did another copy of the original and did a Buzz simplifier #2.

Then I used PSP8's image-arithmetic, and averaged the two images for this result. I like it.

Danny, for some reason, I get an error on yours.

Nice work everyone.

I cropped and used the blur tool to blur the foreground and background. Cranked up the brightness about +50 and contrast -10. Applied cutout (8,3,3) and Smart Blur (2,20,low,normal). Adjusted hue and saturation to taste and added a canvas texture.

I'm still experimenting with custom Impressionist styles, based on the Pencil Sketch: Detailed Monochrome style.

Several layers were generated using different settings, and blended using layer masks and layer blend modes.

Danny, I really like what you did. I was going for a similar look, but it kept coming out muddy, like a poorly exposed neg. Here's what i ended up doing.
Dropped a new layer filled with white and dialed down to 20%
Hit diffuse (anistropic)
Hit accent edges
Hit Diffuse (normal)
