Wow, Jeff, your digital darkroom effects are incredible, stunning end result. #9331804

Carolyn M. Fletcher 4/3/2011 3:15:27 AM

Wow! You really made that work! Looks just wonderful..They have a display on the side of the highway just south of me with some cattle, cowboys on horseback and a dog. Unfortunate buildings in background. One of these days I'm going to get off the highway and around to the other side of them and see if I can get a clean shot. I tried to use the one I have, but I found it really difficult to extract so many from the busy background so I gave up. Now I feel a bit more inspired to try again. #9331807

Michelle Alton 4/3/2011 3:24:23 AM

Wow...you've truly animated this display, Jeff. At first I couldn't decide whether they were living horses.
Wonderful editing. #9331815

What a beautifully 'wild' work of art, Jeff!!! I LOVE HORSES and this reminds me of paintings I've seen...depiciting mustangs enjoying a moonlight gallop!

My favorite color horse...White! You can blame 'The Lone Ranger' for that!(LOL)<:))

These statues of "The Mustangs" are part of a big display in Irving Texas - Digital Darkroom effects created with PSE9, Topaz Adjust (Separate layers of the Spicify and Detailed preset) An adjustment layer of Hue / Saturation colorize option (to smooth out and desaturate the range of existing colors to a more uniform look) and then another layer using NIK Color Efex Filters - Colorize option and I then selected what I thought was a nice shade of blue that would be present late at night under a Full Moon. [That is my story and I am sticking to it] :-)
