Oh what a beautiful back yard!!!! I just had to have a go at this one.

PhotoShop only.....

Desaturated the grass.

Ran a pencil sketch filter on a duplicate copy and moved the result over to the original. Did a diffusion and levels on the sketch so the black pencil was a little less overbearing.

Ran a lighting filter to affect the foreground. Added a canvas texture.

Applied Curves and Desaturation adjustment layers and masked out the foreground so these would only affect the mountains & sky.

Elle,

Thanks again, I do appreciate my yard/view but it's also a lot of work and none of us are crazy about yardwork. You have to admit, bricks are low maintenance, my husband would probably trade with you. Also, my pic is one of the best little slices. It's not all so picturesque, we can see some of a gravel pit, numerous office buildings, the freeway, retail/restaurants etc. I'm not complaining, I just didn't want you thinking it's paradise

Swampy,

I Love your rendition. Thanks for giving the steps you took. Like CJ wrote, I can have my saturday favorite, my sunday favorite etc. Yours will be one of them. (I can't believe how much that grass had to be de-saturated).

Thanks for giving this a go.

Annabel

So many different styles and they all look great. Here is my attempt using Studio Artist and PScs.

Swampy, just noticed your post. I'm glad you had fun. Anytime!

dbuckle,

Man, you've been busy. I love the super saturation and the addition of the rainbow!!! I've actually seen rainbows in that exact place. Your attachment is a little small, I kept wanting to increase the size to enjoy more detail.

Nicely done and thanks for playing.

Annabel
