DAY INTO NIGHT!! (Before and After)

I just wanted to share this cool effect with you that I found in one of my plug-ins that work with Photoshop CS5!
I'm sure there is a way to do this with just PS but this way is a lot quicker.
It's Perfect Effects 3 from onOne Software. It's a great tool for creating special effects for you images:
First, here is a Before and After of the image:

Here is the image in Photo Effects. It's in effects/ movie looks/ day for night. You then can make a few adjustments for a lighter or darker effect!

I then brought the image back to Photoshop for the last tweaking. I drew some small windows, duplicated them 5x in different sizes then cut & pasted  a Christmas tree. I also darkened the tree for a night effect.
For another fun effect I put what looks like tiny lights in the foreground tree into a blending layer mode of "Color Dodge".
Finally, I added a layer of snow to the whole image for a final snowing scene and that's it!! :)
