From the same lazy afternoon in the park…

I made a toned B&W version but I was aiming for a look I couldn’t put my finger on. The toned version looked nice, but was missing something, and I eventually realised I wanted the colour back. So I took my flattened toned B&W and pasted it over the original layers and set it to Soft Light. It gave the grass a crunchiness and richness I liked, but blew out the sky, so I put a gradient mask over the layer to bring the sky back, used a Selective Colour layer to pull more out of the blueness of the sky, and added a bit of vignette.
