I just thought I would throw together a tutorial of a combination of techniques I have shown in the past.  I was busy doing my normal workflow, when I noticed I have never really shown a tutorial on how to put multiple techniques together to function cohesively in your workflow.  Here is a series of cropping, selective saturation, high pass texturing, vignetting and a bit of background blurring.  Check out the before and after to decide whether this sort of tutorial interests you.

I will be making my way across the country this week, as you read this I am more than likely somewhere in the middle of America.  This moving thing really sucks, but it will all be worth it in the end!  Hang in there, I will be reposting shortly.  Thank you for being patient with me as I have been enjoying the labors of fatherhood the past 2 weeks.
