    Still haven't been able to get out much, so started going through some old files to practice on Ps projects. I've been drawn to this same spot many times during the year and at different times of the day, but have yet to get a shot I was happy with. Here's an unedited image and a link to a zip file of the original. Bleak Midwinter20181223_0234.zip I chose this particular one for the challenges it will present in selecting, masking and processing. Can't make it to easy.

    Now here's the challenge. Using (as much or little) of this file as you want, create a new composite image, but there has to be at least something from this file in the composite. Here's a start on one I did this morning. Have fun.

    Tough one to follow, but hopefully someone will try.

    Thanks for the kind words. When Smoke first posted this I was inspired by the awesome revision he did on his. (love the vivid color) I thought it would be fun practice, so I started playing with it, then I got busy and forgot all about it. The other day I was cleaning up some files that needed to be put where they belong and I ran across my work in progress so finished it. I hope some more folks will give it a go. :)

    Instead of adding new/other images, I opted for a plugin called Shape 3D and also mirrored the image, the color shifts were created by combining positive and negative layers of this image.

    Thanks! This could be a monthly challenge. I was on vacation when you posted originally. Thanks to @Jeff G 's participation I saw the post. @gk fotografie had an interesting twist.

    You are probably right. I posted the challenge for several reasons, none of which were really long term. As I said in the OP there's something that keeps pulling me back to this spot for some weird reason, but I've never been able to "see" the image that keeps calling me there. My hope was that someone else's creativity would spark my own imagination.
