Default ~cooked or cropped photos - post here!

That's right! Have you post-edited your pix? HDRs, tone-mapped, extreme cropping, experimental techniques? Anything not allowed in contests - please post them here! We want to see them!

One Rule - Basically Flora or Fauna, keeping with the standards of Wildlife Gardeners.
Below are some examples I could find quickly:

I don't think that cropping or blurring the background is a violation of the rules as I understood them.

The adding of a bug and the artistic filters wouldn't be allowed.

Here are a couple that wouldn't qualify...

One is my niece climbing a tree.
The other is my dog at Valentine's Day. (Notice the heart on her nose.)

I see a Cardinal in the tree! What technique did you use for the cute doggy shot?

Yes, cropping is generally allowed now, but maybe not extreme crops.

Do you see the squirrel in the tree also?

The dog is posterized, the background was pallet knife,. (both artistic filters).
For the nose, I used the eyedropper to select the nose color and then just used a paintbrush to put the heart on it.

That dog pic was my valentine day's card a couple years ago.

I like the posterization artistic filter...

here is another pic that has been edited that would not meet forum guidelines.

Love the heart on the dog's nose. Very subtle. May I send it to my friend who has a golden? Is that permitted?

These aren't exactly leaf shots, but they are somewhat similar....
