Heather K. McFarland

Thanks guys and gals! I appreciate it!

Humm...I'm not up on my country music Murry! (I think that's who Brooks and Dunn are). They must have a song about neon lights is my guess??...LOL.


Murry Grigsby

Heather--the Brooks and Dunn hit was Neon Moon. I'm really surprised that you didn't know it along with Boot Scootin' Boogie and Mama Don't Get Dressed Up LOL. I'm not sure how they picked your GP winner out of all the beautiful photos you posted this month. You really have a great photographic gift and thanks for sharing it with all of us.

Mary B. McGrath

Heather, is this a straight shot, or altered a bit? You sure are an inspiration. Maybe you should be teaching a few classes!


Heather K. McFarland

Thank you everyone!

Mary..this is basically a straight shot. I have attached the original untouched version for you to view.

I straightened it a bit, darkened it a bit with curves, and removed some magenta. Was about a five minute edit to get from the original to the edited version I won with. #32493

Monika Sapek

When I look at the lights, my eyes follow them farther and farther until I canít see them any more (but I want to ;-). You are a magician, Heather!
Many congratulations on your fantastic winning photo!

bob garas

killer shot. well deserved. congrats #32648

Mary B. McGrath

Well, I'm not surprised that the original is also such a good shot.
You never cease to amaze me Heather. #32861

Robert Jensen

Heather .. congratulations on this stunning image - great composition and perfect exposure.

Patrick Campbell

What a well-deserved SECOND Grand Prize win. Your photo perfectly illustrates what the great Galen Rowell called "pre-visualization." Not much need for Photoshop editing when you start with a great image. Many, many congrats to you, Heather. #59451
