Thanks for getting us off to a great start, Billie Jean! I knew our members would have some great ideas for improving this scene. Wondered how you got the splashes in the water and then saw that you had included your sources....thanks for doing that!

I included the little boy, who I have previously used in an EP challenge, then added a rain overlay and took the photo into Topaz Lens Effects and applied a Tilt Shift effect and the desaturated the photo a little to give it a more gloomy, rainy look.
- Used a photo I had taken at our local marsh for the plants in the water. Lots of masking!!! - Ran the file through Topaz ReStyle. - Ran the file through Topaz Adjust. - Applied a texture by Lenabem-Anna. - Applied the Lighting Effects filter (Filter>Render> . . .).
