I got a couple of nice comments on this photo, and there was some interest in the processing; here's how I did it:

I took a rather mundane original '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231905.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231905.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' and first duplicated the layer and applied the High Pass filter, and then made a second copy of the filtered layer. '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231906.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231906.jpg', '/') + 1) . ''

I then made yet another copy of the base and applied the Gaussian Blur filter at about an 8-pixel setting. '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231907.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231907.jpg', '/') + 1) . ''

Finally, after changing the High Pass layers to Overlay Mode (which applied the texture effect) I used a couple of Curves Adjustment Layers to shift the colors around, the first just some gently darkening, and the second to shift the colors significantly. '' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231908.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/1031/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1231908.jpg', '/') + 1) . ''

FWIW I've never tried this particular technique before, and I processed this using Photoshop 5.0 (more than 20 years old) on a similarly old Mac.
