Gorgeous work, Neve. I love how you've softened your background and made the apples prominent.
I'm always a day late and a dollar short, but where are you going?
Tasty efforts all...
BG: cropped. adjusted tone & color
A: Copy BG. Chalkaholic. RadialBlur. (ColorBurn, 44%)
B: Copy BG. PaintDaubs. RoughPastel. FlipHoriz. RoughPastel. (HardLight, 75%)
C: MergeVisible(BG,A,B). Reticulation. ColorPencil. (Softlight, 100%)
D: MergeVis(BG,A,B,C). PaintEng. Impressionist. (VividLight, 100%) a layermask to protect the apples & areas blowing out
E: A B&C Adj. layer grouped to D. (lower C. Higher B)
F: A few handpainted daubs to artify the apples a bit more (moderate opacity)
G: A texture layer. (Overlay)
Here is mine:
Simple Level and Curves adjustments.
Ran an ice filter over a layer and Differenced it over an original.
Slight bit of rain/snow effect.
Just trying something different.
I thought this came out pretty cool ...and it was easy too...
1) Make a duplicate layer.
2) Adjust threshold on the background layer.
3) On top layer apply gaussian blur (around 9)
4) Set blending to darken and opacity at 82%
5) Flatten image
the second one added a frame

cardmnal: very cool effect!
Tyler: Do you recall the source of the "ice filter"? That's a very interesting result.
Ok, here's mine.
Grey layer over original, erased apples and some leaves, save version 1.
Version 1: used effect/texture/sandstone, (reliëf: blurring 7, detail 34, brightness 20, lightening corner 11), saved version 2.
Version 2: selected all.
Version 1: pasted version 2 as layer over version 1 and merged them 57%.
Resized 90% and added some colored frames.
Used effect/artistic effects/colored contrast (blur 8, detail 11, color HTML code #BA6262, corner 44).
Copy all and push backbutton to original and paste as layer.
Merge layers 70% and choose 'difference' (arrow right).
Saved all, resize 80% and added some colored frames.
