One image of a couple of the trees in our front yard taken during the Lensbaby side challenge last month, duplicated and cropped for each side panel, then arranged on a blank canvas. The water is fake, flood filter from Flaming Pear, and the bird is from the bird brushes I made from bird images.
Silver Efex Pro antique plate II filter (desaturates to a light sepia and gives a nice soft but grainy feel with outside edges faded)
Color Efex Pro bi-colored filter (to make the sky blue and water peach)
Color Efex Pro polaroid transfer (adds more blur and grain)
Adjust colors with hue/saturation (since polaroid transfer adds kind of a greenish-yellow tone)
Use window frame 11 as overlay stretched to fit, in overlay blend mode at 55% opacity
Hue/Saturation layer to bump down saturation on the whole thing (since the overlay mode layer makes things kinda strident)
That's mainly it I guess
Here's the frame

This is so neat. I never would have guessed the water was "imported." Really beautiful!

Like a watercolor painting.... Your photos in this series are blurring the line between photography and fine art... They have a very hand made quality to them.

That is the first song my husband and I ever danced to.

These together have that dream quality that takes us to another place and time. LOVELY indeed.

Very very nice. Definitely wall-hangable. As an aside, I downloaded the Color Efex bit, but hadn't found much there to keep my attention. Didn't try bi-color, though. I suspect I might like that one. (Am sold on Silver Efex, though.)
