Before and After...

Ahhh, give me a little weed and some blue sky...
(hey, no pun intended!)
005


Then add a little crop, and some photoshop...
blue weed

Isn't that purdee!

Head on over to Pixel Perfect for more loveliness.

**edited in Photoshop Elements 6. Here is what I did.
1. made a duplicate layer of original, set at hard light and messed with opacity until I liked it.
2. then added a hue/saturation adjustment layer and adjusted only the blue's and cyans. (hence the color change in my weed! I could have then gone to the layer mask and painted that weed with a soft black brush to get it back to the normal color...but who's got time for that!!")
3. Then added a slight vignette.
4. And that's all, folks!

Thanks for the comment!!! Your original was soooo good, it didn't need edits. Too funny, I was on your site earlier and you inspired me to try textures and led me to that great site. LOVE THEM.... Have created some cool pics using textures... THANKS FOR THE INFO!!!!

Thank you for adding what you did. I have to say though, that mostly I am still lost.
