Couldn't resist, here is a watercolour version from PSE with some selective blur and sharpen. You may not like this (admittedly hurried) attempt but try some different "art" filters and see if anything catches your fancy. The images that cannot have the detail we want can sometimes make interesting impressionistic artwork.

Vole - Thanks for your thought-provoking comments! I guess I thought that, if I had done it on purpose, it would be art. But since it was an accident, it was just bad photography...

Les - The half-and-half is indeed light and shadow - photo taken late afternoon when sun was low... Glad you liked the "dreamy" quality...

Roy - I appreciate your honesty, and always value your opinions.

Ira - looks interesting, I may try to "play" with this image again one of these days. Thanks for the suggestion.

You could do this with Render Lighting Effects and the Healing brush from PhotoShop.

Amazing what you can do with software - an interesting couple of pictures here, accentuating the impressionist look to the picture.

I like the watercolor effect Ira put into the image and now I think it would look good on the wall!

Some amazing variations - such talented "darkroom" artists!
