Amy:

That's a very creative combination of effects. Nicely done.

Shari:

Yours is one of the best examples of a WC effect I've seen.

Would you provide some specific details on how you achieved this effect? I'm intrigued by the part PS WC played, a filter I gave up on a long time ago.

Impressionist setting specifics, layer bland mode details, etc.

This is quite nice.

It's nice to work on a simple beautiful pic. Lots of great ideas so far!

Ran Find Edges 72% Fade: 90% Multiply blend mode. Did this exactly the same 3 times.
Solarized: Faded to 42%
Apply Image: Vivid Light 33%
Curves adjustment layer to brighten
Selective Colors: Intensified reds and yellows
Solarized: 25%
As a bonus, it looks like the Multiplying effects has pulled out a background texture.

Cheers
Dave

my humble try

first of all, i just freshly installed (1hr ago) PS7, and i'm a bit scared/frightened of it... i've been using PS4 till now, so it's like an elephant feeling, LOL... so, didn't come out as should, but hope you'll forgive me, wink ;-) wink (just the "history" pallete itself scares me a lot )

second of all, that's an absolutely gorgeous pic, really wonderful, and many great stylizations posted (i mean, all are great )...

third of all, my try - i wanted to make a watercolour that "preserves" the outta focus feeling, so i made a copy of background, erased from that copy everything but those orange flowers and some of the yellow ones, then i ran watercolor on the background, and dry brush (low details, medium texture) on the copy... and that's it... just that the dry brush left many white pieces on the copy, that needed to be erased/recoloured... (haven't accomplished that perfectly, as i said, a bit scared ;-) )

hope you'll like:

I love poppies--they are so photogenic. I also enjoy that they lend themselves to both strong and soft interpretations-as the submissions so far show.

I used my ink and thin water color action. Basically several impressionist layers (tinfoil, thick paint, and fossil) blended together and topped with a find edges layer. I added a glaze layer (render clouds followed by impressionist and mostly masked out) in screen mode at reduced opacity to lighten the image.

you're welcome pjb!


i tried a pontilistic style here (if the impress plug-in does some kinda "the same" thing, sorry; i don't have it, so donnow...)

i applied artistic->"paint dubs" w/ medium sized brush and high contrast, then artistic->"rough pastels" w/ high detail and medium sized strokes [maybe this phase could've been left out...]; duplicated the layer, and set the upper one to "hard light", and applied distort->"glass" to it (frosted, smooth 2, distort 5)

the rescaling smoothed it a lot... better try it at home ;-)
