took this picture a couple of weeks ago while looking for some fall colors.  its ok not great.  So I spent a couple hours playing around in photo shop elements (something I rarely do) and thought I would doll it up.

this is what I came up with first.  I put a poster edge on it and then a defused glow.  kinda cool and if you enlarge it it really makes it look a bit cartoony.  but it was still blah to to me.

This is my final attempt and I am happier with it though now that I look at it the frame is a bit off hmmm will have to go back and fix that later.  believe me I spent more time figuring out how to add a dang frame then anything.   the clue is to increase canvas size I kept trying to decrease and figuring out how to add a layer of black grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr  I told you I rarely do much other than a quick fix on my photos in photo shop. 

Anyhow what I did to get this effect was took the second image and added a water paper and then increased the saturation of the red and yellows in the picture. 

what do you think??
