Looking for Inspiration in Photography

Thinking ahead to colder weather, I have been experimenting with various ways of using older pictures that I made earlier in the year.  Many of them never made it to my blog.  The question I have been asking myself is, are there other ways of processing the images that might be of interest?  These show two variations that I have been trying since some of my viewers are color addicts and don’t like my monochrome images.  The entire technique is made with the tone curve and cropping out portions of images and then resizing them if necessary.

I have also moved beyond applying the technique to old pictures and have been learning, and looking for, which types of new pictures will work best if processed this way.
