...a winter drive....
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
...a winter drive....
...a winter drive....
ND Grad filter on camera.
Shot in RAW and then processed with saturation increased using C1.
In PS, I used basic color correction/enhancement (levels, etc).
On the sky only, a filter called Digital Gem Pro was used to soften the appearance.
Made in Vermont.
