ok, so my first manipulated shot was more of a somber/foreboding scene.. for this i went the total opposite direction.. to a cheery/springtime type dream.. let me know what you all think..

A little too cherry cola for me but still pretty okay I guess.

definitely has that "greeting card" feel to it....not necessarily a bad thing. hope you are having fun with the experimentation.

a little too edited for my taste. I don't even like to clone...I like to do everything in the camera and hardly no photoshop..but what ever floats your boat.

the intersection between photography and art is rather grey.. i enjoy both.. so i try to dabble in both... but there is something to be said for pure photography as well..

Hey Dustin,

Would have been nice to have those people a little closer to front? They get a little lost at the back there... ofr maybe just whip them out altogether?

Overall the effect i think is nice. I like the yellow of the flowers vs the pink of the trees. and I really like the shadows through the trees on the path.

Very

Those aren't people ! They are aliens ! Aliens always glow when exposed to excessive saturation. SEE THE GLOW ! Aliens... I knew it.

I think I would probably like the original photo more than this version. It's a little overdone for my taste. It's interesting that Peggyo mentioned Thomas Kinkade because that's exactly what I thought when I first saw it. Kinkade on steroids.

All I'm saying is that this particular version does not suit my taste. Others love this sort of thing. I know you don't do stock photography but it's the kind of image that might make it in that sort of niche.
