Travel Photos

I had a lot of fun taking pictures in Croatia. The cities were filled with charming doors, windows, winding streets and interesting people - plenty of photo ops! On one of the upper "streets" in the walled city of Dubrovnik, I saw a lovely young couple sightseeing. I took this picture of the young woman standing atop the stairs. I liked it so much, that I thought I'd play with it in Photoshop Elements. I sharpened and blurred the image, changed the opacity, reduced saturation, added filters, etc.
This is the original photo.
(1) Orton technique
(2) Warming filter
(3) Sepia photo filter
My favorite is No. 1 - what's yours?

No. 3, but re-introduce that area of blue next to her right hand.

Maybe the Orton - it looks sort of old fashioned and quaint.
