Use the "Sketch-pencil" preset in Topaz adjust as a starting point for this. Also threw in a bit of clarify, some contrast adjustments, and some selective adjustment of the foreground and sky separately.

It gave it that b/w pencil appearance.

And did you reduce the opacity some? [/quote]
No, I did tweak the preset however to darken it up a little.

So what did the preset do for the photo? And did you reduce the opacity some? For me, I see an enhancement of the metallic look here. It's almost like it's glowing too.

It looks like an ink, wash and graphite work of art. I like it a lot.

Lots of good details in the shadowy parts. The filter you used is pretty effective here. I have never used that specific filter. I may try it based on your good results.

I really like the metalic feel. It feels nice and smooth, but isn't lacking in details either. There's a bit of haloing though, but not so much that it offends the eye.
I likes.
