This was a fun image to work with.

Mike--looks like you have another winner on your hands. The results from your latest action are great!

Xaran--the aged look suits the photo well.

C--I see why you like that treatment--it suits most photos--this on included.

This is made of custom impressionist settings topped with a sketch layer based on smart blur edge only.

Cheryl,

That looks so authentic you could almost feel the texture.

great work by all !

Mike as always you stun me with your results, this looks exactly like a sketch someone did sitting on a bench down the alley.
Cheryl your rendition is excellant, i love the painterly quality you achieved, would love to know your settings in impressionist.
Well done by all.

Platscha--Thanks, I love the texture I can get out of the impressionist plug-in.

I'm pretty sure the thick dabs action was in the set up impressionist presets I sent you. I did use mosaic 1 instead of mosaic 1b when running the action.

If you just have the presets, the layers are (top to bottom--textured versions of all) mosaic1, crackled paint, mosaic 1, smart blur edge only sketch layer treated with filter--distort--glass.

My rendition of the Crete alley, the following was performed:
1. Used CS Shadow remover for the alley to lighten
2. Transformed/perspective to straighten left lean of building
3. Ran thru PAM using a WaterColor scenario.
Thanks
Bob

I especially like this interpretation. Very "watercolor-like." Well done.

My humble effort

I didn't write any steps down and I have no memory what so ever, but I had fun making it.

Mike's been my "action hero" for a long time. I've learned more about action writing (in general) and various Photoshop techniques from his actions than anyone on the planet. Besides being exceptionally talented artistically and skilled at using Photoshop, he's a really nice guy.
