I thought this might work for some neat paint blobs I discovered with the PlasticWrap filter. It didn't behave as I intended, but I still found the result here interesting and workable. Layers (bottom to top):

BG: Original picture
A: Copy BG. Decolor. Clone vegetation into the black area above lead rider.
B: Copy A. Invert. LinearDodge mode
A1: Copy A (turn off visibiliity for now)
B1: Copy B (turn off visibiliity for now)
A2: Copy A (turn off visibiliity for now)
B2: Copy C. change to ColorDodge mode (turn off visibiliity for now)

Run PlasticWrap 20/12/13 on layer B
C: Merge visible (A & B). Levels Adj to darken.
C1: copy BG. Color mode. Merge down (C1 back into C)

Turn on visibility for A1 & B1. Turn off C.
Run PlasticWrap filter (15/10/8 ???) on layer B1
D: Merge visible (A1&B1). Levels to darken. Motion Blur -23/35. Opacity ~50%
E: Copy BG. Color mode.
F: Merge visible (C,D,E). Turn off visibility of layers C thru F.

Turn on visibility for A2 & B2. Run Fresco 4/4/2 on layer A2.
Turn on visibility for layers C,E & F.
Set layer F to ColorBurn, 55% opacity. Set layer C to 31% opacity (still Normal mode).

It never ceases to amaze me how people find "useful [as in arty] uses" for filters that just don't get much love or respect.

Creatively done, Mark.

CLICK HERE for Mike Finn's "Impressionist" filter style that i've used for this image.
First, i used a sketch layer, overlay blend, merge, then the impr filter, then did a bit of tweaking with color balance.

Hi,
Impressionist filter seems to be popular on this one, and here's what I've come up with so far. This one underwent lots of hue/sat enhancements, smudges, and finally Impressionist filter djroil24.

...the colors and texturing really make this one.

LeRoy would surely be pleased.

Thank you, Danny.
I think I remember seeing a challenge on LeRoy Neiman's look somewhere around here. If anyone else has been playing with this style, I would love to exchange notes.

Hope you find some of the contributors interested in sharing notes.
