This edit is made up of almost entirely adding different textures. I think it's amazing how much interest textures can add to an image. First I did a levels adj. layer. Then I added my own wood texture and applied just to the bench, to add detail and interest to the wood. I did the same thing to the sky, using one of my sky textures. Then I went crazy with different textures until I got the effect I was looking for, with various opacities and blend modes. Removed some texture from the kitty, added a touch of warmth and pop. I selectively sharpened the cat and the bench, as I wanted the background to kind of fade away. Then, since I wanted something to finish it off, I chose a basic frame. In order to tie it with the picture, I chose three textures I had used in my processing and clipped them to my frame. I think the colour and texture of the frame now look better with the image.
