Image Manipulation: Fro-zerns

I just digged my external hard drive and found this old photos that I've shot using Minolta 28-80 + Macro Filter. The original photos seems not too interesting. So, I've done some post-processing with Photoshop and Photoscape.

Here's the photo...combinations of 2 images side by side.
