Photo fixes February 2009:
I thought this was an awesome photo. I am a big fan of farm landscapes, and I really like the textures and shape of older equipment. I selected the plough using the pentool and copied it to a new layer. Added some red to it and boosted the contrast a bunch. I added a bit of contrast to the grass as well. I used a sunset photo to add some color to the sky. I like to shoot a bunch of sunris and sunset photos, as well as clouds. I often use them to add to other photos. I also added some contrast to the fence.
Thanks Versus86 for letting me work on your photo.
Here is another version I did as well
