Grassy Voyage
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Grassy Voyage
Grassy Voyage
Canon Powershot S3 - PS applied
An old row boat, rarely used...seemed to set out on it's own voyage in a wind-blown grassy embankment along a lake in northern Wisconsin.
The wind was blowing very hard, which helped create the "water-like" effect in the grasses. Photo edits include sharpening, curves, magic wand and lasso for highlights, color adjustments, and clone tool.
