Great renditions all.

This is a "one in a million picture", does not need any tweaking of any kind.

My rendition in oils, Painter 9.

Some nice stuff here.

Mine's not terribly original, I'm afraid. I didn't want to stray too far from the original which seems to be my natural inclination.

Two sessions with the art history brush, with which I've decided to refamiliarize myself.
First tight/long, then tight/short with smaller brushes.
Then ran it through Impressionist/paint (don't ask me to recall the exact settings).
Duplicated that, set to overlay, cut back the opacity.
I reduced the saturation of the greens and moved them a little toward blue to make the background a little less overpowering.

I was working on another one I might have liked better when it was done but PS locked up on me. (Insert appropriate vile epithet here)

Why can't I leave this alone? Somebody make me stop!
(This is the image I was working on when PS crashed. Some unseen force made me go back and start over.)
Used Danny's oil-from-CNC action, then ran Impressionist on a dupe of the original at low opacity to get a few more brush strokes.
Okay, I'm done now. That's it.

Hey, dc, don't stop now. You're just getting rollin'!

Welcome to the forum. I like your interpretations so far.

I see this child as afraid or cold. The wet looking hair may indicate that he just came from a bath or swimming and is wet and cold.

I decided to give the image a somber mood in keeping with my feeling about it.

Colored Pencil..

Interesting interpretation, Steve. What a wonderfully expressive photo to work with! Here's my go at it. I started in PHotoshop, and changed to a sketch, by inverting a dupe layer, linear light then blurring. Then went to Painter and cloned using the colored pencils. Added texture, and went back to Photoshop, and added some skin tones and shadows. Had to bring the quality way down to post.
Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to all.
