Done in photobrush. Auto stroke, filter blur light haze, and emboss. Simple, really!

I like the Sir Lancelot look. You did great on the shadow of the knight on the bridge, alot of people forget that detail or just smudge it, but yours looks so real with the light between the legs and the lighter shadow toward the back of the horse, it looks really good.
Have a nice week.

Thanks to everyone who's had a go at this - really great interpretations, I specially like the night effects, and the knight effect.

I have some other shots of this castle I'll post later.

Christine:

See what you did? (You started something TERRIFIC.) Thanks for starting this one. These are some inspiring interpretations.

= = = = = =

Mine:
* Dupicated the Background and desaturated the duplicate (Ctrl + shift + U)
* Duplicated desaturated layer twice (3 desaturaged copies of the Background)
* Top one: Smart Blur/Edge Only, Ctrl + I to get black lines on white. Changed blend mode to Darken. Darken will negate the white, but not affect the black lines.
* Top: Added Hide All (black) Layer Mask (Layer > Add Layer Mask > Hide all)
* Middle: Impressionist plugin - Pencil Sketch > Detailed Monochrome
* Middle: Added Hide All (black) Layer Mask
* Bottom: Impressionist plugin - Conte > Unsmudged Monochrome
* Middle: Clicked Layer Mask thumbnail (to make the LM active) and airbrushed with white to reveal pencil strokes from this layer.
* Top: Clicked Layer Mask thumbnail (to make the LM active) and airbrushed with white to reveal some of the detail lines from the Smart Blur / Edges Only effect.

Thumbs down Terrific....

Wonderful job on that Danny....the first thing it reminded me of was the similarity to my grandsons attempts at colouring in.

Cheers

Talking I love Castles...

Ok in photoshop...I added median blur till it looked painted, then i went into curves and changed the whole colouring, then again in blur, until i got this effect...

I only wish i made an action cos i like this look.

I spent a lot of time on this one, results maybe don't reflect this, but I guess it's good enough to share at least from a learning perspective.

Elements2: Image>Transform>Perspective to straighten the architecture. Many masked curve layers to get some decent color and contrast. Then...

Painter8: Cloning using various brushes from the Acrylics category. Worked from background to foreground, large areas to details as per "proper" painting technique. I added some hand painted shadowing to the clouds to try and give them some life. The ThickAcrylicFlat10 brush provide the 'thick paint' texture to the castle. This brush makes great mountains from scratch (per a tutorial I've been playing with), but maybe isn't that good a cloner. Also, it left little 'pin-holes' that I had to fix back in Elements.
