These statues of "The Mustangs" are part of a big display in Irving Texas - Digital Darkroom effects created with PSE9, Topaz Adjust (Separate layers of the Spicify and Detailed preset) An adjustment layer of Hue / Saturation colorize option (to smooth out and desaturate the range of existing colors to a more uniform look) and then another layer using NIK Color Efex Filters - Colorize option and I then selected what I thought was a nice shade of blue that would be present late at night under a Full Moon. [That is my story and I am sticking to it] :-)

- These are life-size statues of "The Mustangs" and I was trying to see the possibilities with them to go into the Digital Darkroom. It is challenging to get a clean shot of them since they are so popular with all of the people around having their picture taken with them.

Wow! You really made that work! Looks just wonderful..They have a display on the side of the highway just south of me with some cattle, cowboys on horseback and a dog. Unfortunate buildings in background. One of these days I'm going to get off the highway and around to the other side of them and see if I can get a clean shot. I tried to use the one I have, but I found it really difficult to extract so many from the busy background so I gave up. Now I feel a bit more inspired to try again.
