Lots of different adjustments and selections on this one. I wanted to keep the feel of the shot because I really like the great outdoors aura it has. The little fisher girl was a bit soft so I put her down in the corner just as a point of interest but not to become the subject.

Of course a crop to accomplish the above and a sky replacement.

I think it is a beautiful scene and lots of fun to work on. Thanks Jodi!

I like the look of this image Jodi. Very nice composition with lots of human interest.

My main goal was to warm the shot up some and give it a little color. I can picture her getting in one more chance at catching that fish before Mom marches her of to dreamland.

An excellent choice for us to play with. Thanks Jodi.

Ok, here's my usual texture take on this one. Was kind of a rush job, but I think it came out ok. Hope you all like it :)

I don't have much as far as details because I never really keep up with what I'm doing. I just kinda go by feel. I can tell you that I used 2 textures on this, "overlay" blended on both. punched up the color in the sky and grass. Left the crop as is because I liked it.

Okay, I decided to try a sky replacement along with the frame. Other than that all I did was do a high pass filter and slightly change the color of the water to go with the new sky better.

I cropped a little, replaced the sky.. the sky image, slelected everything but the water and put it on a new layer..did a vertical flip of the sky image and put it under the new layers, reduced the opacity of the layer with the whole image to about 50%...applied NIK indian summer effects, added a slight vingette and threw Bessie in for good measure

I picture her wanting to stand there till dark. I know this is alittle on the dark side. crop, lighting effects, B&W, fade to bring back color, use warm Photo filter to make the light appear like it the last of the evening light

  I know no one else cropped much, but I just wanted to see what this would look like in a panorama view.
It took me almost 2 hours to finally figure out with Dale's tutorial and several CS3 books to finally change the sky, and I can't remember how I actually did it or what I clicked on to get it to work...just hope replacing skies will get easier.
I only added a little color and a tonal contrast filter to bring out the detail a little more.

Jodi this was a great shot.
I darkened the sky, did colors levels, adjusted the blues and greens until I liked them, lightened shadows, high pass filter, soft light blend, flipped and cropped.

  Ellen I like the flip, it give a whole new way at looking at the picture. I forget that you can flip and sometimes that is exactly what it needs. Sometimes it actually feels better than the way it was taken. Great job

A fun image to play with Jodi!

I didn't do much to this one - 5x7 crop, levels adjustment, adjusted hue/sat, lightened shadows, added posterization filter, added oil painting filter then changed the sky color.

Here's mine.

Tighter crop, flipped the image, and a few others that I should have written down. . . .

Great image Jodi!
