This is a shot taken while travelling over the Pont de Normandie bridge over the River Seine near Le Havre, France. I was in the front passenger seat of the car so had a good chance to take quite a sequence of pictures.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens at 10mm.

The bridge is pretty surreal to start with so I decided to experiment with Topaz Simplify and Coloured sketch preset.

Photoshop

Detail was brought back in with Topaz adjust with vibrant presets group with Clarity preset with adjustments.

The main sketch effect was then added using Topaz Simplify, coloured sketch preset with some adjustments. This was applied on a layer with a layer mask. The road area was darkened by removing the effect by about 20% using a brush on the mask.

A brightness Contrast Adjustment layer was used to increase contrast.

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.

Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 53 amount and 53 radius. This effect was excluded from some areas with a brush on a layer mask

The healing and clone tools were used for tidy up..

Below are the Before and After images. First the original image and then the final result.
