Description

This is the boardwalk that winds its way through the aspens in Ashcroft, the ghost town near Aspen, Colorado. I used a technique from Mark Johnson's Photoshop Workbench at Radient Vista: http://www.radiantvista.com/. He presents a free online workbench every Thursday. BTW congrats to all the September finalists and eventual winners! The quality of photos posted at BetterPhoto just keeps getting better and better IMHO.
