        Ed - thank you, what a wonderful image!

        Just did threshold, very light history brush, added texture, and slight lighting.

            Smart blur on a layer copy, blend mode to hue. Some blur tool and hue/sat.

              Ed what a wonderful picture. One could only wish to have such a treasure. There is nothing like a boy and his dog!

                I love this picture Ed! What great renditions everyone has made.
                I am learning so much from y'all (texas talk). I was going for a water color effect.

                  I am so sorry, I don't know how I reached my result. I just started playing with the picture trying different things. When something doesn't work, I delete that and start over. Pretty soon my history fills up and I can't tell what I've done. I do know I did it all in Photoshop. I know I used aimphisoft simplifier, rough pastels, andromeda scatterlight, and played around with
                  other filters and selective color(for the background). I tried to replicate and I can't. I hate when that happens. I've come up with some neat stuff before, and can't remember how I got there. Do y'all write everything down. How do you remember?

                    Ed - Outstanding photograph. I only wish I had a high-res to play with.

                    Bill C - Love the leaf
                    Lisa - Nice sketch, they seem to get better and better.
                    GoldCoin - Your accident looks really nice.
                    Jill - You managed to capture the essence of the photograph with a very simple black and white. Nice.
                    BK - Nice rendition. I like the floor reflection.
                    Jean - Almost looks like a logo.
                    Shari - Very nice misty watercolor effect. The colors also blend very well.

                    I started out with using adapt.equalize to bring out some detail in the pooch.
                    Did a smudge on the pooch and the boy. Attempted to improve the skin tones a bit using skylight filter.
                    Used an assortment of blending modes to enhance colors.
                    I drew the background on several layers, expermenting with some colors and forms.

                      I am late to the party on this one. A lot of nice work here as usual. I do like the last post (Looker I believe) a lot. Has a kind of painting look with the detail of a photo.

                      Couldn't resist trying one although I had trouble downloading the original. The first thing I thought of when I saw this photo was - old photo. So, here is an old photo...

                        1st one.
                        Messing with a technique to create "panes" within an image. Trying to get an effect similar to the one in recent Hewlett-Packard commercials.

                        Nothing fancy technique-wise: Creating selections on the base layer and placing them on layers by themselves (Layer > New Layer > Layer by Copy)

                        - - - - - - - -

                        2nd one.

                        Mostly Impressionist effects on different layers, blended together.

                        It's 2 a.m. and I'm pooped. I-O-U the details. I'll write 'em up and post them this weekend.

                              Now that's a manipulation.

                              Brilliant concept.

                                Sorry it took so long to post this. I know you were just drooling. This is one I got from one of my sons. Whenever we have a big get together, he brings poppers. I could make a meal out of 'em.
