For the one-stock challenge at #ManipulateThis
The challenge was to use the same stock background that everyone was using and create a new manipulation from it! The theme is her exotic pets, from the dragons, to the kitty to the lion statue in the yard by the castle.

(Special texture I made just to use for this deviation ~ it is in my scraps on my stock site ~ to see the windows better, download the deviation)The Kitty
and the Autumn Leaves
are clip-arts posted on my stock site. Both were redone and enhanced for this project, so I replaced those files.Brushes
Clouds by ~Wearwolfaa
Birds by *redheadstock
I used enhancements, filters, effects, saturation, lighting, darkening and hue adjustments to bring out the clouds already in the photo, but I added a few more for depth.
The birds are very light and high up in the sky, but I added them since it would be unusual to not have a few birds in the sky!
