This is a a detailed image overlayed with an image of the same scene taken with a lensbaby. I created a layer with the center tree only and adjusted to opacity so that the detail of the vines on the tree would show through to the lensbaby image. I then combined. several NIK and Optikverse filters. I also used the render>lighting effects filter in PS to get the glow on the tree truck. I dodged the photo moving out from the tree to give the impression that the light from the tree was radiating outward.
