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.

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).

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.
