So glad you liked it!!
I love both your versions! But The 'sunset' one is breathtaking and so much more appropriate than mine for the 'title' of the picture "hot creek" ....
Love both you versions too! The colour one is absolutely superb! But what a great idea improving a somewhat 'flat' colour image by changing it to a strategically (.. and beautifully) enhanced grey version!!!!
P.S. I have customized and stretched it to fit my needs .... but I got the "Overlay Technique" from Katrin Eismann's Book ..... Like Jeanie, I'm an 'information junkie' and I loooooove experimenting with every new technique I come up with, most of the time trying to combine or 'bend' a few of them into something new ... but I learnt the basis from K.E. and from all the tips here at RP!!!
I had great fun with this photo of yours, Royce....absolutely stunning photography on your site....I took up your offer to play around with one of them...chose this gorgeous rainbow image. Thanks. Here is how I came up with my result...using PSP 8
convert background to raster layer
Virtual Painter...Pastel (in PSP 8)
lower opacity to 84 and set blend to dissolve.
Add 20 border...select...add Xenofex..Distress border
Select white border...add cutout...v and h 2 Opacity 67...Blur 0
Repeat again but this time make it minus -2 for v and h.

This one is, like has been said, flat because of the lighting. The problem is that it is all the same - so there is a lack of interest. Pretty scene but flat.
What I did; Duplicated background layer, changed new layer to multply. Added blank layer in overlay mode and painted with white & black in a lot of little spots for depth, and darkened the sky.
Attached is the color, but I will attach a second copy desaturated because I think the color makes it hard to see what was done.
Jeanie - Love your brown version!
