Moonfizz....Beautiful. The light on the river and around the bench are perfect! If I did not know better I would think the picture was real.

Two variations

Separated the bench from the bg with a layer's mask. Desaturated. Levels. Bit of ... just forgot. Well, version one.

The photo has a certain calming effect to it and evoked a feeling of peace. The image was created using my secret sauce, lighting effects and a home made ray of light.

Hope you enjoy the effect.

David, your image reminds me of the old series "The Saint". All you need to do is add a stick figure.

I looked at this image quite a while, and all the lovely versions I found here.

Gary, I love your river version! Made me go and download the trial for the flood filter.

I decided to try something totally different. I wanted to see what the bench would look like without the trees growing out of the top. One of the things I wanted to stand out was the contrast between the white bench and the color of the foliage.

There are more compression artifacts than I would have liked, but I did my best to keep the file size down to the forum limits.

The advantage of posing late is that you get to see all of the wonderful, creative ideas.....the disadvantage of posting late is that you get to see all of the wonderful, creative ideas and it is tough to come up to the standards all of you set!
Slight 'buzz' added to this one....darkened....spotlight (render), and texture.
Regards,
Bill C

I've enjoyed looking through this thread. There's a large variety of excellent submissions.

I'm still playing with my dark paint effect. I've started using layer sets when playing with this. They're easy and make it a little easier to undo mistakes--nice since the problems I have with this method seem to happen in the very first step and I can't tell it didn't work until the end.

Layer set 1

1. Flaming pear's Mr. Contrast
2. copy of the original
3. copy of the Mr. C layer
play with blending modes until happy

Layer set 2

1. Flaming pear's Melancholytron
2. copy of original
3. copy of melancholytron layer
play with blending modes until happy

Then, take put layer set 2 on top of layer set 1 and play with the blending modes for the set. Add a copy of the original on top and play with that. Merge results to a new layer and duplicate. Run flaming pear's lacquer on the top copy and play with blending modes. Add texture.

Thanks Jeanie. I'm still working on this look--my success rate is only about 50% of photos I think are suitable. I was pretty happy with this one though.
