I threw the whole bag of tricks at this one - enhanced contrast, black and white conversion, selective colour, and the Orton effect (which is responsible for the soft/blurry look).

 

Basically just a chance to mess around a little with an otherwise ordinary shot to get some Photoshop practice.

 

Just about the only thing I didn't do was HDR!

 

Sorry if I've hurt anyone's eyes in the process. I shall of course put these techniques to better and more subtle use on future shots... :-)
