Today, I turned a color image black and white, played with the brightness and contrast, and added a blue filter.
I did the same for this photo except I hand colored the lips red.

I haven't really gotten into using the curves for color and contrast correction, so I was happy when I found a simple way to make photos pop, by simply duplicating the layer and changing the blending mode to soft light.
Keep duplicating layers until the desired effect is achieved. If you want further tweaking, you can adjust the opacity from 100% to whatever you are comfortable with.

Tonight, I played with an image by creating many different layers and using the puppet warp tool to peel away different parts of the face and then changing the scale of the warped images. The collage was fun, but discovering the 3D New Shape from Layer tool was even better. I used the cube and the ring here.
