I can't decide whether I prefer this one to the original dear liza, or dear liza #2, but I am pleased with it, mainly because I managed to bring out the detail in the bucket without the processing being too obvious. As you can see, there's quite a large difference between this version and the original:
As for the processing: five masked Curves for contrast, one unmasked one to tone the image, and a Selective Color layer to add a bit of yellow to the highlights.
As always, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
