Creative interpretations: Retaurant on Beach in Crete

Another pic from Crete. Never been there, but this looks very nice.

Lunch, anyone?

Thought I'd experiment with BuzzPro and Microsoft Impressionist.

Attached is the final result. The next post has a snapshot of the Layers Palette.

Layer notes:

B. Use the Buzz preset Coloured Patches, but changed settings to 42 and 330.

D. I though the sand detail got wiped out a little too much, so I restored a little by copying the original background and restoring some detail via a Hide All Layer Mask.

E. Another MSFT Impressionist layer, but I changed the settings a bit to get larger, more defined strokes.

F. Selectively applied a Hue shift and Saturation boost to all areas except the sand and mountains

G. A little more boost to the tree leaves.

This is FUN!

Nice work Danny.

I thought this would look nice done up by the David Roley Hayes Cafe action.

Great stuff

Although I am overly found of anything hayes Islandish I have to say Danny, that is the closet to looking like a hand done painting i have ever seen. Great job as always.

Danny-- I love the bold colors and the way the little bits of white show through--like where paint missed the canvas.

C--Hayes Island worked well on this image.

I started with some custom impressionist presets (my ink and thin watercolor action), then deleted the find edges layer the actions creates. Put a copy of the original on top and used the bold lines action from a new set I'm working on.

Thanks for your comment Cheryl. Nice watercolor look to your version.

Christine, I like the ink outline result. The texture is a little heavy for me. I guess I am a light on the texture person. BTW, I have found that if I go to Edit - Fade after applying texture and fiddle with the fade control I can get an in between result that is sometimes better than the texture setting. You probably already know that. Sorry, just trying to be helpful.
