Beautiful. I travel Kentucky often and love the photo opportunities. Thanks. Also, could you say the location of this? #222673

Hi Mitch
I apologize, but I do not recall exactly where it was shot. I have traveled the entire U.S. a couple times - zipping up and down roads, shooting and moving on. I recall that there was a Civil War battlefield nearby as that is why I was in the area. The original image was pretty flat from the fog and so it sat in my files for years before one day I thought it was a good candidate for a Photoshop makeover. Thanks for asking! #1155951

By the way: The Photoshop was real easy and somewhat unorganized, since I started out randomly trying things and not really knowing where I was going. Then, boom, the effect started to take shape. I added another layer and converted it to grey scale. Then I went back to RGB, where I added the blue tone. Next, I made another Duplicate Layer and did a Blur for a little softness. Next, I used the burn tool to continue to work the large tree on the left and burning in a somewhat sloppy manner for effect. Eventually, I burned the tree to total blackness and left the guy on the road in a sort of bright tunnel effect.

This is what makes Photoshop so much fun: Starting and not knowing where you are going. It's just as exciting as searching for the photo in the field! #1156962

This is what I'm talking about !! Images like this are the reason for my being a professional photographer today. It's not just a snapshot like so many others here. It was given some true thought and care. This is what photography is all about, drawing with light. Regards, #1159700
