After playing in "the darkroom" as I now call fiddling with the computer, I just threw some like images together in layers and blended them along with some additional tweaking of filters and sharpening...well in other words I didn't worry about going easy. Everything was just thrown together like a poorly designed recipe. Sometimes though the end results can be very pleasing. I think these qualify, at least to me.
