We seem to indeed...what is funny is your beautiful old truck photo (the crying guy) looks almost identical to a photo I took recently in Upper Michigan. That's what caught my eye! I am still trying to figure out how to photshop a couple of branches out. Lynn

Lynn, I love the work you did on this! I've played with those lens flares; they create a really neat look, in certain settings, and I think this is one of them! I also love the color cast you chose for this.

Thank you so much Kate. The headlights are actually a flare filter I added later. I'm not sure if this old relic has as much "hope" for actually running again as this image implies! (lol) Thanks again...Lynn

Congratulations on this on Lynn! I'm not sure of all what you did, but the PS work is very good. I can see the "render/lens flare" on it :-) Nice touch and use of it! Looks really good. Has a great feel to it and like it's in a fog almost(I'm sure you know that better than I though).

I've been thinking about you lately and your last comment "jogged" my memory. I am glad to see that you are "back on-line' and hope that everything is going well for you.

It's almost sunset time so I have to go out and take shots for a class. And I'm finally breaking down and taking the Creative Photoshop class this coming month. Hope I learn a lot.
