Hi Tom, this is a fantastic shot. It was even a bigger impact on me when I saw it first thing in the morning on a extremely dull day. Anyway I am new to photography and was wondering if you can tell me how you took the pic and what "after processing" did you go through? Let me re-iterate - WOW!!!!!!!!!

Thank you all for your fantastic comments about this image! I am thrilled to be selected as Photo of the Day!

For Tyler and Pinal...The photo "Middle of Nowhere" was created by isolating the house on one layer in PS and then applying the motion filter to a duplicate layer of the scene. There are a few more tricks involved in getting the colors to turn out as they did, but I would have to write a book in order to explain them to you. If you experiment a little with PhotoShop you will be able to create all kinds of neat stuff!

ok, I need not say that it is beautiful, it would be redundant. But I would like to learn from you guys so could you please tell me how in the world you were able to capture such beautiful colours, clarity, detail????? is it the camera? software? luck? skill?? give me some hint, please!

Tom Andersen
BetterPhoto Member

member since: 7/17/2004
 

Thanks for your comment, Ann!

You are on the right track. The resulting image is a product of the lens, to capture detail and color, the graphics software program which helps develop the image, and a good smattering of luck with a little bit of skill! Perhaps, trial and error is a good part of it too!

Ann, if you look above, you will see my response to Tyler and Pinal. They asked virtually the same question. Unfortunately, I don't have the space here to explain every little detail of the process, but at least you will get the basic method I used. Then, it's up to you to use your imagination to create the image you see in your mind.
