Creative interpretations: Paris by the Seine
I haven't quite got what I'm trying for--yet. But this is close.
Convert to CMYK mode. Duplicate black channel. Convert back to RGB. Load black channel as a selection. Run Impressionist (something with low distortion) follwed by paint engine (to soften). Deselect. Note: you have to delete the black channel to save as a jpg when done.
I didn't do it here, but after saving for the web, created a new layer, filled with brown and ran texturizer. Erased at 50% opacity with a grunge brush (large size). Set to color dodge--it adds a little something.
Second image: Got the look I wanted :-)
duplicate original, run buzz gloss stack (remove around 100 rest around 4)
duplicate buzz layer, increase brightness and contrast.
on top layer, select black, select inverse. Fill with brown, paint with art history brush. Vary modes and type. Deselect. Set blend mode to multiply.

Xero Line Art - drawing mode
Inverted Selection and copied to new layer
Layer mode changed to overlay
Added new layer below and filled with cream/beige colour
Added texture to this layer.
Some fabulous stuff here folks! Steve, I really like yours. Paris really is the city of "light". Kiska, yours is totally different but awesome. Great photography breaks down to: Know your subject; Focus attention; Simplify. In your work you've accomplished this.
I've taken a pen and ink approach.
Select water and levels to darken
Thanks, Duv, for the kind words. I like the clean simplicity of your sketch. If you were to get one 'painting' software, what would it be? Anybody??
