Creative Interpretations: School Band

I went to a small town parade and took this image of a school band.

Hope it catches your interest!

Top layer is copy of original run thru the new Xero Caravaggio filter; set to Overlay layer blend mode --

next layer is the masked-out result from the Red channel after running Levels to increase contrast --- ran the Distort --> Wave filter on mostly the dark areas, then I changed the color to a yellowish hue; set to Overlay layer blend mode;

Bottom layer is color range selection for sky blue and tree green plus a bit of the street added by hand in quick mask -- ran Paint Engine's "Riverwild" filter;
