Re read rule #8. This is a post processing competition to learn new techniques, not image specific. As previously stated, i have limited access. No offense intended

Glad you like it. The above was just a quick hack job using gimp. Opened the two images and flipped the Greece shot horizontally (didn't really need to but it helped me visualize for some reason, maybe since it matched the left to right flow of your image). Then did selections of the pieces from your image that I wanted, one at a time and layered them in with some rotating/scaling/flipping as necessary then used layer masks to blend the pieces in. I know the daring Jason Bourne wanabee's in the foreground aren't scaled accurately but I wanted to be able to see the center house and stairs, so I made them a little smaller than I think they would naturally be at that position.

I've just got my hands on Photoshop.
A daunting set of possibilities

I'll know what to do for the rest of the rainy season - between my day job chores of course

I just opened Pandora's box for a quick try and used nothing more than Filter gallery and inverting the image.



Next I added (back) some punch in LR. At least there, I more or less know what will happen when I move some sliders.

I'll try to come up with something more in the next tries

Looks like very little interest, but still time for entries

Ivoire, it looks like the image link to the original is missing on the first post. That might be slowing things down...

For the original image, I understand ivoire has very limited access to the
internet. So, I thought I could post a link. It would of course be better if the original post could be edited.

I hope you don't mind, ivoire. Otherwise, just let me know.
At least on this forum, we can edit our own posts

Well, since I already had the file saved, that didn't stop me.

For my 2nd entry, I fell back to DxO FilmPack4.
As the name indicates, the basis of this software is set of analogue film emulations.
Next to that, lots of the image properties can be manipulated.
Also includes, textures, border, "light leaks".
Quite fun actually and I use it mostly for the b&w film emulations.




For the 3rd entry, I went back to PS.
I barely scratched the surface there but I used this as a learning example
Really crude attempt at cloning, masked a bit by adding a layer with Analog efex from Nik.

Thanks for posting a link to the shot Bart. I guess that means I ought to enter!

Thanks Bart for posting the link, I like the dxo rendition... Lots of difficulty here. The local cafe lost their server and i usually have to wait in line for a computer.

@jmschrei... great entries.I like the conversions you've done.

The sepia treatment works really well, Joe!
