    Two pictures at the reception of my employee's wedding. The flash was a bit harsh in the originals. The candids of the bride and father/bride converted nicely to colored pencil effect in photoshop.

    Would you share the conversion steps? I like it a lot and my PS skills are pretty weak. :)

    Beautiful!!! I'm not a big fan of PS but this is one effect worth the work.

    I really don't have lots of Photoshop skills. On this set of pictures I really just got lucky. The candid shots were a good setup for the photoshop application because they were harshly contrasty with the flash Nikon SB 600 on a D200.

    In Photoshop CS I just opened the picture, then in the Filter pull down menu I chose Artistic > colored pencil and then just moved the sliders for pencil width, stroke pressure and paper brightness a bit to make it more visually appealing.
