Isn't it true that one of the reasons we love photography is it's ability to move us or to make us feel a certain way? Enhancing mood through lighting is a really great way to achieving this with your own photographs. Here's how I edited the following image:
Neutral Leak 7 - Use Load Leak Overlay action to apply light leak, then brush off slightly
Cream Contrast - Adds a painterly glow. Adjust opacity to 50%
Silk Shadows - Smooths the shadows
Burn - Re-introduce some depth using the burn brush
