This is the original with the Myst; I increased the saturation a little and a bit contrast...

In this workshop I took the background layer that was black and in Hue-Saturation dialog box made it light all the way to look at a different perspective!
Thanks, David

Made three layers
Used Smart Blur on the top layer
Then slightly erased where needed to show more details
This gave the skin a smooth look that most people want in portrait...
using Marquee too at 76% cropped and posted on top.
Used Hue & saturation Dialog box and reduced the lightness bar to zero creating a black background while the top layer feathered at 76% created a fading away to black at the ends.
Thanks

I have simply duplicated the layer in Adobe Photoshop;
By selecting the part with a square marquee tool and then pasting that as a second top layer;
Then in the bottom layer I have darkened it by using Hue & saturation dialog box;
Aligned both layers in the center;
By double clicking the top layer and in the dialog box choosing 'stroke to give a slight soft lines around it!
That is all, & thank you!

Blending two images together in PS:
In the first layer crop out selected area using Magnetic lasso tool.
Apply Action filter/image effects/oil pastel on the main image behind the layer.
That is all.

I have done the following to give this beautiful rose a little more 'get-up' :
Selected the rose via magnetic lasso tool and copied & pasted as another layer
Increased sharpness and adjusted 'curves' to take away brightness
In the second layer using maquee tool, selected behind the petals as you see, and copies & pater as a middle layer.
Using Hue & saturation tool, made the last layer totally dark.
On the middle layer using style option made 'strok' using the colors on the petals.
As you may see that it enhances the view a bit of your already beautiful rose :)
Have fun & thanks

Have simply created several layers and used curves in one layer, levels in the other & saturation in the third and then 'merged down' in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
Let me know what you thought.

Created two layers in Adobe Photoshop CS4
Using ctrl+U on the back layer selected dark option
In the top layer:
Used 'Smart sharpen' tool to sharpen a bit
Using 'Curves' ctrl+M - adjusted contrast
increased saturation a bit
Cropped it as you see.
Hope you will like another view of your beautiful image :)
Thanks!
