It fascinates and impresses me to see the different renditions submitted for some of these images, and you all have continued to impress me with these submissions!

Janet, your interpretation led me to depict the current threat to the desert in which I live -- the ever-growing need for housing coupled with the desire to find cheaper land on which to build...

Adjusted saturation and color to look more like Arizona, then added a photo of some construction and masked/cloned to try to make it look a bit more realistic.

Wonderful CJ, your interpretation really makes a profound statement. How true you are. Your picture leads me to wonder if they are as short on water there as they are other places that have "blossomed" in the desert?

Thanks for the comments,

Janet

I'm with you on a couple fronts:
* "I'm still learning..........hope I always will be." Definitely.
* "Make mine a frozen Margarita... Worth a shot [of good tequila] anyway." Here, here.

Hey, that's a very cool composite. You did a great job matching up the images proportionally. The "tracks in the sand"-work was especially well done.

= = = = = = = = = =

This is one is based on a Jim DiVitale method for achieving an Ansel Adams-like, written up in The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby.

The frame was rendered by an action available at Johny Akerlund site where you will find some great black and white and toning effects:

I was facinated by the method TPaul described in this post (click HERE), so I decided to try it on this one.

I liked it so much that I (literally) applied the steps three times in succession, then finished off by flattening the image and applying the #djrOil24 custom Impressionist preset (available HERE), which was faded to about 60%.

Danny, that sure is a gem of an image, in particular the clouds, they have a genuine painted look and the colour contrasts are stunning

I credit T's method plus some additional saturation. It pretty much created itself.

Thanks for your kind words.

Here's one just for fun. I've been playing around, trying to imitate Polaroid manipulation. Sort of "other worldly"
