What a beautiful dreamy image. Love the colors and tones! #326080

Bob Duncan 10/13/2005 11:33:11 AM

Incredable image Adam.
What sort of post processing if any have you done with photo?

Adam Burton 10/13/2005 11:48:06 AM

Hi bob,

Thanks for your comments. I have adjusted sat and contrast a little bit and then just curves. The light was so special that it really didnt need anything, other than the standard bits to wake up the RAW file. The accompanying Jpeg was perfect straight out of camera.
