LOL spider legs. That is what my Art History Brush looks like.

Thanks for the comments. How did you know I named the first one Butternut? Too funny.

D.O.U.B.L.E W.....O.....W

These are inspiring to say the very least. They are both equally fantastic and I couldn't possibly choose between them.

Because the name of the file is "Butternut-wagon"

Hi Danny,

We have some very similar country here in South Australia.

I first replaced the dull, colorless and boring American sky with a highly exciting Australian sky. The rest of the image was just a series of Curves Adjustment Layers to modify the exposure on different parts of the image.

Regards

Con Looymans

I think I topped you here Con. I replaced the dull American sky with a never-existed-in-real-life, poorly hand painted one.

I'm not sure this is up to par, but I sure spent lots of time on it. Here's how:
BG: Original with lots of basic retouching (esp. color correction)
A: Some colored scribbles to fill in the "holes" from layer B
B: Painter8 TaperedPastel clone except the sky was P8 AcrylicDryBrush by hand.
C: Dup of B. (ColorBurn, 23%). Layermask to protect the darker areas
D: Dup of B. GlowingEdges. (LinearBurn, 49%). Layermask to protect the mountains.
E: An ugly blue/light blue gradient hoping to fix the sudden dark-to-light transition in the painted sky. It helped. (That's how bad it was, 'cause it's still bad.)
F: A frame made from wood salvaged from the wagon. (Got to recycle )

-Mark
