pasture

I really liked this picture when I saw it. Bill and I must have been working on the same idea at the same time as far as changing the dirt in the fore ground. I added blue bells.
All the submissions are great.
Took a picture of blue bells from the web and dup it a bunch of times. Worked the bightness and contrast. Used dry brush and plaster filters.

Wow, so many great efforts...changes in light and color can make so much difference, can't they? Lots of good work here, but a few really caught my eye: CJ, the lighting is absolutely perfect! This is a wonderful bit of photo art! Jeanie, the panorama is a great idea and turned out really well! Amanda I love the ponies you added...perfect touch! Chuck, that's a great painting and the added clouds add extra oomph...great job!

Nicely done, Palms... Glad you dug this one up.

I was in the mood to do a little playing. The results I got are easy to recreate in Elements or Photoshop as long as one has the Impressionist plugin and the "jch van gogh" custom preset installed.** See the Layer's Palette snapshot for the layer detail.

The texture/depth effect comes from applying the Texture > Craquelure filter with all settings = 0, a trick I learned from Phyllis Stewart.

** To find this and other custom Impressionist presets, go here:
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-art-resources/8328-impressionist-plugin-custom-styles-member-posted.html

Step-by-step:
1. Duplicate Background
2. Apply Impressionist > jch > van gogh (pressure = 200)
3. Layer > New Layer > Hue/Saturation (Saturation = 75)
4. Create a new layer
5. Alt + Layer > Merge visible
6. Apply Craquelure 0,0,0

Replace the sky.

I used this image that I stole (er um) borrowed for this mix of fantasy with reality. For the original background, I merged the original with an Overlay of Harry's Atmospherizer filter to blend it with the fantasy background. Hope you all like it.
