Creative interpretations: Football Players make Football Plays

We haven't done a football pic in quite a while. Can't post NFL pics (NFL frowns on that sort of thing), but college games are okay.

Very cool, Jeff. My compliments. One of the better interpretations I've seen lately, right up with Bob's "strawberry head."

When you get a few minutes if could you summarize how you did that, I'm sure many would be interested.

This is a combination of Find Edges on top of one of the many Microsoft Impressionist Plugin effects.

Layer Stack top to bottom"
F. Hue/Saturation (increase saturation a bit)
E. Levels (lighten image overall)
D. Levels (grouped with Find Edges layer below) - to get rid of some midtone noise
C. Find Edges (Darken) + layer mask to zap more noise
B. Impressionist: Charcoal - Default (using image as background)
A. (off) Background

Danny, great job! It catches the dynamic action very well.

As for mine, here are the steps.....

1) Went to Google & searched for "blimp" under the images tab. Found an old Navy blimp picture.
2) Added a picture of sky on a layer below the blimp
3) Using a mask layer, I completly masked hanger that the blimp was located in, and changed opacity on the windows of the cockpit to 50% (to let the sky show through)
4) brought in football picture on new layer, blend mode=hard light
5) reduce opacity of football player layer to ~65%
6) floated football picture selection
7) Used deform tools to scale, rotate, and change perspective, and move football players into position
8) De-float selection
9) Crop & Save

Cheers,
Jeff
