Mosaic Monday - Fun with layers

It is cold and wet outside today so I have been playing with layers in Photoshop Elements. You can find free layers and tutorials on the web for adding layers. This is my first try. Just a little experiment. Not all photos would lend themselves to layers - in many cases perhaps the original is better. Anyway, this is another of my everlastings shots I decided to experiment with. The first photo is the original, and second as 2 layers, and the other 2 just one layer with saturation adjusted.

Mosaic Monday is an initiative of Mary from Little Red House - please go to her site to see her beautiful work and the work of others contributing to Mosaic Monday.   Mosaic Monday at Dear Little Red House
