    This was done using action art_edges_on_texture from the collection that can be downloaded here:

    Latest news coverage, email, free stock quotes, live scores and video are just the beginning. Discover more every day at Yahoo!

    When the action finished, I duplicated the original background, moved it to the top of the layer stack and changed to blend mode to color. A hue/saturation adjustment layer was added to give the colors a bit of a boost and Levels were applied for additional contrast.

      This is all I did to this image:
      1. Adjusted using levels, hue/sat, and brightness and contrast
      2. Buzzed Image
      3. Blur motion
      4. Cut cyclist out and placed over #3
      5. Did a reflected gradiant
      6. Placed text at bottom

        I really like your paint strokes out of fantastic machines paint engine they were neat. I have the product but never have gotten any stokes like that. I will now go back and try again using your setting.
        Thank for sharing.
        Ps; Danny is great helping us all by working so hard in collecting and maintaining all the actions available to us. Thanks Danny.

          I can't believe no one has taken this image and added motion blur to the rider. I didn't do it either.

          I used Leroy and TempD from fantastic machine's paint engine. Topped it with DC Special's Outliner 4. Then used Flaming Pear's Melancholytron to subdue the colors.

            Whatever fancy filters those are, the result is very beautiful.Great job.

              svsg--2 can be had for no cost and the third is very reasonable (and only a small part of the look anyway).

                  Hi all,

                  though it's obvious Danny wanted to get some motion or movement here, it's not that easy,is it? Only Cheryl with the blurring at left gives it some sense of motion.

                  I tried using motion blur but couldn't get anything I liked.

                  I want to say that the picture inspired lovely offspring though!

                  Danny : I like the smart blur over the vivid colors. Are those colors the result of the action or did you tweak it ?

                  Bob : efffective : the red for this picture; I went that way too!

                  Don : the green background with fm strokes makes me think of an aquarium plant you did like that. Do you have motorcycles in your tank now?

                  Cheryl : I like you render the most: the roughness and subdued colors are just perfect for this pic and the blurring to the left really gives a hint of movement.

                  Steve : lovely sketch!

                  I don't remember what I did because at one point I had three files with about 8 layers open all different. Then I started to shuffle layers between them until I had something to work further with.
                  As I recall : used a glowing edges layer, an embossworks layer, kpt equalizer , smart blur for the edges with usm and aniso.
                  A layer with segmation and aniso.

                    As I recall the colors came primarily from the action, but I may have further enhanced with an additional Hue/Sat adjustment layer. I didn't keep the layered original so I don't know for sure.

                    - - - - -

                    For the record I had no preconceived notions regarding motion / movement. I just thought it was a cool picture!

                        I like this image, and wanted to give is some motion.

                        Here's my take, using just Microsoft Impressionist!

                            Not more rumours.

                            Did two versions for you, I think I prefer the B&W myself.

                              Using Photoshop:
                              1. Duplicated layer;
                              2. Added Motion Blur;
                              3. Erased Bike & Rider from blurred layer;
                              4. Adjusted colors using Color Balance and Curves;
                              5. 50% gray overlay to adjust light and shadow;
                              6. Unsharp mask;
                              7. Added Sandstone texture.
