I asked myself, "What if I turn the image upside down?"

Here with as little tweaking as possible, is the result.

I'll still have plenty of time to decide to work on it, or perhaps delete it

Google description:

A fantasy scene inspired by a famous movie and also a famous song from the past. There is a yellow brick road that lies between the grassy meadows with lots of colorful flowers blooming on each side and if you follow it into the distance there is a Gothic emerald city at end where you might find that your future lies beyond the yellow brick road.

This was fun! I placed the small river in a way to feed into a large river and make it a sanctuary area for wild birds. A preserve for the birds to be safe in nature. The owl takes front focus and then you see all the other birds in the image. Also done in a slight panoramic format.

Oh dear. This poor alien has lost his way. He was out exploring and got caught in a terrible thunderstorm. He lost his bearing and has been making his way along this muddy path for hours. But wait! There is his friend in the flying saucer who has been searching for him! What luck, because as you can see by the space pods in the distance, it's a very long walk back to his city. I love a happy ending, don't you?

No one really knew where she came from, only that she fell from the sky. She was just a child and the local critters raised her. It was discovered that she had an infinity for snails. She could communicate with them, and they would share their worldly views back to her. It was said that she would even ride on the back of them, but it would take a very long time to get any where. Around these parts she was known as the Snail Princess.

A big red train travels through the wooded rural countryside delivering freight. It cuts a path with it's headlights through the early morning misty layer of fog that is burning off with the rising of the sun, making it's way to the next city train yard to hand off the cargo to the delivery trucks.

"Surprise!"

Abbie Shores November 2020 edit challenge. In this fourth editing version, I processed the original image for lighting and to bring out the sky details. I darkened the light sky areas where the indication of the sun might have been originally since the girl I added has the light coming from her left front side. I therefore added a shadow behind her. I also added her reflection to the puddle.

The sweet little blonde girl is fishing in the puddle. Her fishing bobber can be seen in the water. I then added a shark fin sticking out of the water and seemingly rushing toward her bait. I sometimes find it difficult not to inject my own sense of humor into an image. I hope someone gets a chuckle out of it.

Abbie Shores November 2020 edit challenge. In this 5th editing version, I processed the original image for lighting and to bring out the sky details. Then I added a waterfall, viking ship,reflection, flying birds and sunbeams in the distant background for a surreal or fantasy effect. I lengthened and widened the image a bit. My theme was to hearken back to the early explorers who thought the world was flat and you might sail off the edge!

As a Great Horned Owl sits on a dead tree stump on a fall season evening after a fresh rain, a squirrel pops out and freezes as it sees the owl. He's thinking, "It's time to get out of here."

I caught this Great Horned Owl on my roof one evening this summer and have been trying to figure out a photo I could work him in to. Was excited to put him in this one. He sure was a beauty.

The image reminded me of a quote by the 1913 Nobel Prize winner in literature, Tagore(Thakur)
The quote is from his song March On Alone that refers to fighting against social injustice.
The tall trees that curve inward like a cave emphasize the solitary nature of the person walking.
