Here is one I messed around with using multiple layers and layer masks for varied brush strokes,contrast colorization etc in different parts of the picture. Even used something other than the oil paint filter to put a little more emphasis on the crepuscular rays.

BTW, That rose is awesome.

I did something similar to this. Mine didn't turn out as good as yours though. Maybe I used too many filters.

Playing around with Pixel Bender and some old photos today.

1. I liked the texture of the wood with the brush contrast set to about .1 but I didn't like the way the sky looked so I did a cross blend between the 2. The sky is at 0 and the rest is at .1.

2. Not only are trees really cool with this filter but waterfalls are pretty neat looking too.

3. Here's some trees in the next lot back from mine.

4. Here's another tree. The original looks like it may have been a test shot but it looked pretty cool with Pixel Bender added to it.

5. This one took a little tweaking to get it right. It started getting tedious so as soon as I got it where I wanted it I left it alone.

6. Then you get the ones where you open them up in Pixel Bender and you say. Yup That looks fine the way it is... like this one...

7. This one wasn't changed much either

9. I would have liked to have tweaked this one a bit but I had trouble with the reflection merging with the trees on the right. Looks pretty slick though.

My favs are 3, 6 and 9, but the third one is excepionally nice. If it were me, I would clone out the small tree that is up front and the green spot in the row.

Nice job though.

Agreed, the creek and fisherman one looks great!

Thanks for the comments everyone. This plugin is giving results that I've been looking for for years!

Here's a few more I did today...

1. This is inside a mock Tiki-Hut in Hawaii. This is a child bed of a King I believe.

Great series! The last three r my favorite! I agree that sometimes a photo that's not all that great can get much better with this plugin!

Thanks for the comments. This is such a cool filter/plugin. I did find use for one of the other settings. It's not to complicated but it's different...
