    Looks like a real adventure, doesn't it? Photo by A. Holder.

    Tote that barge! Lift that bail! Have some fun!

    Style: Pointillist Sparse
    Background: Dark Blue
    Brush: 25%
    coverage: 100%
    Pressure: 200
    Added Sandwater Silver frame.

    Cheers

      Duv... Nice look, didn't overpower the boats and great color.

      Did mine in Painter 8 using a couple of Wow brushes. Oil chalk, a custom blender. Back to Photoshop and overlaid the original, blended and added two different textures, decided on this one...

        Regatta Race

        Love this image! Tried it about 100 ways before I found one I could go with tho.

        Used FP Aetherize, then buss, then a bit of PE arctic, and PSP8 Texture Fur01 for a painted effect.

          Wow... these are great. Makes me want to go sailing!

          1st attachment:
          Decided to try out Mike Finn's pOpArTist v2 action on this one (see http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...7994#post67994 for download link).

          2nd attachment:
          Never one to leave well enough alone, I started with the pOpArTiSt layer and duplicated it twice.
          * Top Layer: pOpArTiSt + Impressionist Charcoal: Default + Unsharp Mask (500,40,85), (opacity=40%)
          * Middle Layer: pOpArTiSt + Virtual Painter Oil Paint filter (opacity=85%)
          * Bottom layer: as rendered by pOpArTiSt action

            Very tasty Danny! Goin to start playing with MF2. Definitely a winner.

            Decided for another go.
            PS: Ocean Ripple
            History Brush on Boats/Buoy
            Selected same and ran Impressionist:
            Pencil: Soft Opaque
            Background: Image
            Brush: 25
            Coverage: 98
            Pressure: 105

            Selected water: PS: Distort Wave
            Curves adjustment to bring back a bit of snap.

            Cheers

              Went around the world on this one.
              NOT necessarily in order of appearance:
              Selected boats,sky,sea
              Boats- find edges, glowing edges,several times
              sky- posterize,dup,multiply
              Sea- same

                Lots of great work here.

                Duplicate background. Run buzz gloss stack (reduce all to 4 except set remove to 100). Increase brightness and contrast.
                Select black and invert selection. Paint with history brush at 50% using a grunge brush. Bring back lots of detail on subject, not so much at edges.

                Run impressionist (I've been playing with creating brushes--custom). Run fantastic machines paint engine--arctic and fade 65%.

                Select inverse. Run virtual painter oil.

                Create new layer. Flood fill with dark brown. Run texturizer. Create layer mask. Paint with grunge brush (low opacity) to reveal image below.

                    Thanks Danny. :-) I was pretty please with how this came out myself--especially since I can remember how to do it again.

                      Here's a stormy rendition. Used Impressionist Conte along with Mr Contrast.

                        I like the colours in that photo. I muted mine.

                          Here is my entry into this very fun challenge.

                          Rendered in Painter XI and CS 5 and more than a few trips through the Topaz filters to emphasize the sky, which was completely repainted. And a trip or two into Mystical Lightings for additional lighting effects and a bit of misting over the water in selected areas.

                          Also did a lot of work on the water to give it a more churned up menacing look.
