You can almost smell the dust. (BTW: He made a great throw to 1st base.)

Terrific pic by C. Dahlberg.

This is a really great image, so many possibilities. I went with Impressionist on this one.

Ran MIke Finn's pOpArTiSt, then adjust pOpArTiSt several times. Dragged the result back to the original, duped the original background layer, moved it to the top and set blend to color. merged layers.

Ran Impressionist with Danny's oil setting.

Made a new layer (per Cheryl H's excellent post on "color glaze"), selected white and a gray from image and ran render clouds. Added a layer mask and used a grunge brush to reveal the image.

Added a curves adjustment layer to give it a little more "pop".

Patricia:

Even though this guy is playing 3rd base, you definitely wacked a home run on this one. I personally prefer photo-paintings that look more like paintings than photos, and this one definitely qualifies.

In a word: BRAVO!

Here is a pencil sketch done in PSP8.

First ran One Step Photo Fix. Then:

Duplicate layer and set top layer to negative image, mode to dodge. Select Effects, blur, blur more. Repeat. Adjust opacity to suit. Merge all. Adjust saturation to taste.

Here is a PS7 version.

First applied Katrin Eismann Fill Flash action.
Duplicated BG.
Desaturate and duplicated again
Invert top layer and set mode to color dodge. Gaussian filter, radius 10.
Merge top two layers and duplicate.
Set top layer to multiply and adjust opacity to suit.
Merge top two layers
Double click BG and promote. Drag to top and adjust opacity to suit.
Add a Hue/Saturation layer and adjust hue, saturation and lightness to suit.
Flatten and save.....

1. duplicated background and ran a modified buzz gloss stack (reduced remove to around 300 and set the rest of the sliders to 12, added brightness and contrast around 40)
2. Select black with magic wand and invert selection
3. paint with history brush
4. ran impressionist (paint swirl) and paint engine (bad chalk) (presets aren't too critical to the end result) faded both slightly
5. took 2 light colors from the image and made a canvas glaze layer
6. dodged the face a little and added a light texture.
