    I like the effect in that last shot...kind of looks like a painting/print.

    The first shot is leaning to the left. Nice looking village, mind.

    So was I after walking up and down that hill a couple of times - I did crop and straighten before printing! The pub next door to the church wasn't bad either and most welcome!

    In Photoshop or Elements.

    Duplicate (ctr J) - Desaturate (shift ctr U) - Duplicate (ctr J)- invert (ctr I) (looks like a negative) - go to layer styles and select "Colour Dodge (looks white) - Go to filter "other - minimum or gaussian blur. Play with the settings. Flatten image (shift ctr E) and use levels or curves to get the intensity you want. Use of the history brush at a low setting with soft edges lets you colour it back in. This one had another duplicate layer with style "overlay" to give a painted look to the colours.
