Creative interpretations: Pasture

Here's a scene that I have tried to do something with and I can't seem to get what I want. Of course the problem is that I don't know what I want.

See what you guys can do with it.

I started to try black/white, but ended up playing with the color of the light hitting the different parts of the pasture.

Oh WOW CJ! That is awesome! Now I'm almost embarrassed to post mine.

I was trying to play with the light as well, but leave it more as a traditional photo. First I cropped it to make it more of a panoramic, then added a different sky that I have in my "sky collection." Increased the contrast by copying the green channel to a new layer and setting the blending mode to luminosity with opacity 50%. Added another layer in overlay mode and played with dodge & burn on the highlights and shadows. Finished it with a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to adjust everything to my liking.

E.B. - nice picture, thanks for sharing.
CJ - very dramatic - I like the lighting and texture.
Here's mine
Duped the layer
Top layer - ran Apply Image ... with the mask button checked ... then selected blue channel, difference, gray channel
Then I changed the blend mode on top layer to Multiply
Flattened

Jeanie, CJ, BillC

Would one of you adopt me so I could watch you do this stuff.

All three of those renditions are great.

Did a couple of versions of this. Plain old clouds filter for the bland sky, and the NEW command/option/tilde thing (cool - thanks, stay-at-home mom!!) on a layer set to vivid light. Sharpen and hue/sat to taste.

The other version.

Whoever guesses what filter I used wins a prize!

Jeanie - wow! Nice work
BK - also, a wow! great colors...(could you provide a link/hint on the 'tilde' thing?)
My guess on the filter ... begins with an A! (of course!)
Regards,
Bill C

Mine is just a quickie done with Paint Engine. I added a few friends for our distant horsie. He looked lonely.

Isn't everyone having a great time with this image!! Thanks again, e.b.!!

Jeanie -- "Awesome" right back at you! What a wonderful panoramic view!

BillC - love the night view, and it makes good use of the detail-less sky area -- smart and good-looking!

BK - vivid reproductions - good use of the Luminescence mask!

Fishboy -- obviously, your skills work on landscapes as well as fish; love that magenta sky. We get those here often.

Chuck - love those clouds! Make it bigger!

Amanda -- I'm SO glad he's got friends now - what a beautiful pastoral scene!
