The lighting on the Loch and mountains was so good that I just lightened it a bit and changed the mode of transport.
I was very tempted to do a Loch Ness monster thing but do not have a suitable image.
Urquhart Castle did not ft!
Contrast & saturation by NIK
Railway by the Isle of Wight. Because it fitted!
Speed sign from local beach.

"This contraption has to be removed because it doesn’t fit the scene, whereas I do!"

Brightened image, lifted shadows, made a duplicate copy. Cloned out both cars, copy/pasted white car from copy image, rotated on its side, added drop shadow. Imported dinosaur, moved him so that his hands were pushing the car into the water, Levels adjustment, slight shadow.

Late night work on the banks of the loch!

As you might have realised, I prefer to obliterate the traffic rather than clone it away! No empty road for me!Grin
Basic stuff in Elements.
Night time with moon.
Recent picture of a truck in daylight, used on our local beach to move shingle..
Lens flare on headlight. Two lights too much.
Hope somebody likes it.

Birds come home to roost

I used Camera Raw to bring out the colours and lighten the darks. I also removed the blue from the clouds. I then removed the two cars by using clone and copy and paste. Using Nik Colour efex I adjusted tonal colour and then used Darken/Lighten centre. I was tempted to add dinosaurs but mulled this over in my mind and went with many bird brushes in PS to add that busy-ness that there is often toward dusk of many birds swirling around in the sky. I also added, way in the distance, a small group of sheep on the hill - from a photo of my own which wasn't excellent but being small they look OK Tongue

My third and final effort.
To show that I can remove the cars, without the owners permission, I cloned them out, they are now in a locked car park in Keswick!
I brightened the whole image slightly.
Added a bigger tree over of the small one in the distance.
Added a stunted tree near the road.

Cropped into letterbox, opened up the shadows, a bit of cloning in the sky, added warmth and glow.
A bit 'normal' compared to all you skilled shoppers'
Please don't consider me for a win as I am away (in the Scottish islands) for the next couple of weeks so could not judge easily, not that I have any chance of winning
