Since practicing, reading, and trying to improve my learning techniques I have had very little time just to do something for me, so when today arrived and I competed my last restoration I declared a Me Day.....So I let my artistry flow and this was the results
Stretch and water color

Nice Pipsmom!

Though you could try to enhance the colors.

To do that make the upper layer active and press ctrl+alt+shift+e.
This will create a NEW layer on top of the others like when you merge all layers but without merging the existing layers.
You can then experiment on the new layer with a hue/saturation adjustment layer.

Had a play with H&S, increased contrast and added High pass...whole new look

Nice, but in my opinion i like more the desatuared and smooth look on the first one, i think suits the image better.

Cheers!
