Re: For comparision...

looks easy enough. As I pointed out earlier, you can copy a tone from a picture you like and fill a layer, then play with the layer blend modes... basically the same as photo filter. You are not limited to the colors in photo filter either and can color pick from other images.

I think this picture also shows the extraction I first brought up earlier on the other picture. The tree and children are on their own layer and then you can do what you want with the background...often making several extractions.

Also, the "PAINTERLY" effect is what gives his images their character as much as any of his other edits. Extracting a subject and bluring/lighting the background on a photo still looks like an edited photo vs. a work of art.

Interesting. Here's the second of those images (top), and (bottom)
with photo filter applied -- normal and multiply modes, adjusted and
masked. At least this technique is fairly easy to replicate.
