I'm happy you like it. Thank you so much Alexis, Chastity, Emily, Paul, Peter and Marta.
Chastity, I did not use dragonizer (actually I don't know what this filter does). Usually, the only filters I use in separate layers is USM in luminosity blend mode and gaussian blur in multiply, overlay or soft light blend modes (depending on the image). In the separate layers I can apply the filters selectively, making holes with the eraser tool or "painting back" in layer masks. If I can recall in this image I use a gaussian blurred layer in soft light blend mode.
