Modified photo in Photoshop CS3. Adjusted shadow/highlight and increased yellow saturation. Selected only the seed-head and changed the saturation and hue to make it brighter. I painted in some more orange sun glow on the distant peak.
Then..... using "save-for-web" I created a GIF file and reduced the number of colors to 64 and set Lossy at 16 which blurs and "tears" the noise and details. You can get some really interesting effects just with these two settings.
