Creative interpretations: Yachts at the Finish Line

Looks like a real adventure, doesn't it? Photo by A. Holder.

Tote that barge! Lift that bail! Have some fun!

Duv... Nice look, didn't overpower the boats and great color.

Did mine in Painter 8 using a couple of Wow brushes. Oil chalk, a custom blender. Back to Photoshop and overlaid the original, blended and added two different textures, decided on this one...

Regatta Race

Love this image! Tried it about 100 ways before I found one I could go with tho.

Used FP Aetherize, then buss, then a bit of PE arctic, and PSP8 Texture Fur01 for a painted effect.

Wow... these are great. Makes me want to go sailing!

1st attachment:
Decided to try out Mike Finn's pOpArTist v2 action on this one (see http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7994#post67994 for download link).

2nd attachment:
Never one to leave well enough alone, I started with the pOpArTiSt layer and duplicated it twice.
* Top Layer: pOpArTiSt + Impressionist Charcoal: Default + Unsharp Mask (500,40,85), (opacity=40%)
* Middle Layer: pOpArTiSt + Virtual Painter Oil Paint filter (opacity=85%)
* Bottom layer: as rendered by pOpArTiSt action

Boats- find edges, glowing edges,several times
sky- posterize,dup,multiply
Sea- same
Filters on all

Lots of great work here.

Duplicate background. Run buzz gloss stack (reduce all to 4 except set remove to 100). Increase brightness and contrast.
Select black and invert selection. Paint with history brush at 50% using a grunge brush. Bring back lots of detail on subject, not so much at edges.

Run impressionist (I've been playing with creating brushes--custom). Run fantastic machines paint engine--arctic and fade 65%.

Select inverse. Run virtual painter oil.

Create new layer. Flood fill with dark brown. Run texturizer. Create layer mask. Paint with grunge brush (low opacity) to reveal image below.
