Color is a fascinating subject, especially when you start talking digital, with a monitor able to display over 5 million different shades and hues...
I like to play with various adjustments in Photoshop, pushing the color envelope.
Cross Processing is a photographic effect using different chemicals to affect the color of an image. In Photoshop, this can be accomplished with Gradient Adjustment layers, and by changing the blending modes.

Here is a piece I enjoyed tweaking:

I think my "after" makes it look more like a holiday party!
