Nicely done Danny! You boosted those colors without the need of the Nik filters just fine! I also like the more abstract feel that the Impressionist custom style and Dry Brush creates.

Excellent!

Really, really nice effect Neve! I used Art History Brush, Nagel12-13 85 Width 65% Opacity Tight Short , just a few broad strokes across the image. Hit image with Unsharp Mask 145/7/0. Changed brush size to 37 and painted over the racers. Changed to 68% Luminosity Mode. Hit image again with Unmask Sharp 145/7/0.

Cheers
Dave

A variation of the Howie Mudge technique, and then ran the layer mask and the top layer thru a couple of filters (poster edges, diffuse - darken -- some others that didn't pan out).

[Mudge technique -- duplicate original layer. On the new layer, name it dissolve. On the dissolve layer, use smart blur edge only and normal, and invert. Create a third layer by making a duplicate of dissolve. Call this third layer soft and switch it off temporarily. (I made my copy BEFORE running smart blur.)

Add a layer mask to the "dissolve layer" and using a large soft edge brush, changing the effect from normal to dissolve, start erasing the photo, as much as you want. As little or as much. Once this is complete, turn back on your soft layer. Now finally blend the third layer with soft light and it gives a wonderful painted effect. [I didn't use the dissolve layer mode - used normal for different effect.]

Homage to Leroy Neiman

PSP 9 again. I would write more, but there isn't enough room in this margin...

Sidis, I adore Neiman's work. I think you've done an excellent job emulating him, considering the limitations of computer aided art. Wish it were sharper though. Must be the 100 kb thing.
