Hi Mitch
I apologize, but I do not recall exactly where it was shot. I have traveled the entire U.S. a couple times - zipping up and down roads, shooting and moving on. I recall that there was a Civil War battlefield nearby as that is why I was in the area. The original image was pretty flat from the fog and so it sat in my files for years before one day I thought it was a good candidate for a Photoshop makeover. Thanks for asking!

By the way: The Photoshop was real easy and somewhat unorganized, since I started out randomly trying things and not really knowing where I was going. Then, boom, the effect started to take shape. I added another layer and converted it to grey scale. Then I went back to RGB, where I added the blue tone. Next, I made another Duplicate Layer and did a Blur for a little softness. Next, I used the burn tool to continue to work the large tree on the left and burning in a somewhat sloppy manner for effect. Eventually, I burned the tree to total blackness and left the guy on the road in a sort of bright tunnel effect.

This is what makes Photoshop so much fun: Starting and not knowing where you are going. It's just as exciting as searching for the photo in the field!

This is what I'm talking about !! Images like this are the reason for my being a professional photographer today. It's not just a snapshot like so many others here. It was given some true thought and care. This is what photography is all about, drawing with light. Regards,
