I often get asked how I create the images that I do, and although the majority has to do with what I see in front of me and what I capture in my camera, I definitely edit in Photoshop as well.
Personally, I LOVE actions! They speed up my workflow and create beautiful results!
In fact, The Photo Professional just came out with a new action set called Spritzer that I would highly recommend. They are really easy to use and produce some beautiful results. Here are two of my favorites from the set.
