This is the scene I was painting in pasels on location. Rather nice -  a delighful jumble of colours lines and shapes. But I wasn't happy with the outcome (the first attempt on a painting trip is usually a failure I find), so I photographed what I had done and then played around with it in Photoshop to emphasise the lines and colour. More interesting overall I think.

The original was on pastels paper 18"x24"
