    Danny, great job! It catches the dynamic action very well.

    As for mine, here are the steps.....

    1) Went to Google & searched for "blimp" under the images tab. Found an old Navy blimp picture.
    2) Added a picture of sky on a layer below the blimp
    3) Using a mask layer, I completly masked hanger that the blimp was located in, and changed opacity on the windows of the cockpit to 50% (to let the sky show through)
    4) brought in football picture on new layer, blend mode=hard light
    5) reduce opacity of football player layer to ~65%
    6) floated football picture selection
    7) Used deform tools to scale, rotate, and change perspective, and move football players into position
    8) De-float selection
    9) Crop & Save

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    This is a combination of Find Edges on top of one of the many Microsoft Impressionist Plugin effects.

    Layer Stack top to bottom"
    F. Hue/Saturation (increase saturation a bit)
    E. Levels (lighten image overall)
    D. Levels (grouped with Find Edges layer below) - to get rid of some midtone noise
    C. Find Edges (Darken) + layer mask to zap more noise
    B. Impressionist: Charcoal - Default (using image as background)
    A. (off) Background

    Very cool, Jeff. My compliments. One of the better interpretations I've seen lately, right up with Bob's "strawberry head."

    When you get a few minutes if could you summarize how you did that, I'm sure many would be interested.

    We haven't done a football pic in quite a while. Can't post NFL pics (NFL frowns on that sort of thing), but college games are okay.
