To get the girl to a more pleasing position (in my opinion):
* Duplicated the Background
* With the move tool, moved the new layer up and to the left a bit
* Then did quite about of reconstruction to blend the two layers back into one

Added a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer and fiddled with increased saturation. Airbrushed black over the skin areas to negate the saturation boost there.

Merged visible and applied Virtual Painter Oil Paint. Duplcated the VP layer and applied VP Oil Paint two more times, which really blurred things up.

Added a hide all layer mask (Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide all). Airbrushed the layer mask with white just about everywhere except the girl. This left her relatively detailed while revealing the blurry top layer just about everywhere else.

LQQKER--I don't have the vocabulary to express what a wonderful job you did on this. I guess I'm left with offering an ineloquent, but sincere, WOW. Your work is always great, but this is really something--even for you.

I was inspired by LQQKER!

Slight crop
boost saturation with Xero Art Grain
Paint Engine on various selections. What I remember:
* Artic for sky
* Pastel variations for land
* little waves for water
Clean up around girl's face where PE moved color

Looks likes paint engine is the tool of choice for this one

I put a copy of the girl on a different layer to help keep her "clean." Played around with the color in nik and with adjustment layers, then ran the background through impressionist followed by paint engine (one of my favorite combos).
