Hi Tom, this is a fantastic shot. It was even a bigger impact on me when I saw it first thing in the morning on a extremely dull day. Anyway I am new to photography and was wondering if you can tell me how you took the pic and what "after processing" did you go through? Let me re-iterate - WOW!!!!!!!!! #1232250

Tom Andersen 4/6/2005 4:47:19 AM

Thank you all for your fantastic comments about this image! I am thrilled to be selected as Photo of the Day!

For Tyler and Pinal...The photo "Middle of Nowhere" was created by isolating the house on one layer in PS and then applying the motion filter to a duplicate layer of the scene. There are a few more tricks involved in getting the colors to turn out as they did, but I would have to write a book in order to explain them to you. If you experiment a little with PhotoShop you will be able to create all kinds of neat stuff!

Costas Partassides 4/6/2005 5:00:12 AM

ANN VARELIS 4/6/2005 8:01:57 AM

ok, I need not say that it is beautiful, it would be redundant. But I would like to learn from you guys so could you please tell me how in the world you were able to capture such beautiful colours, clarity, detail????? is it the camera? software? luck? skill?? give me some hint, please!


Tom Andersen 4/6/2005 8:26:20 AM

Thanks for your comment, Ann!

You are on the right track. The resulting image is a product of the lens, to capture detail and color, the graphics software program which helps develop the image, and a good smattering of luck with a little bit of skill! Perhaps, trial and error is a good part of it too!

ANN VARELIS 4/6/2005 10:22:50 AM

hmmm... ok, let me be more spacific...I want to know how you got everything blurred(I assume you were driving by as you took picture)BUT the house is perfectly focused! how? thank you. #1233668

Tom Andersen 4/6/2005 10:53:51 AM

Ann, if you look above, you will see my response to Tyler and Pinal. They asked virtually the same question. Unfortunately, I don't have the space here to explain every little detail of the process, but at least you will get the basic method I used. Then, it's up to you to use your imagination to create the image you see in your mind. #1233718

Linda D. Lester 4/6/2005 11:43:15 AM

WOW!!!Again! I knew we would see it again! So Awesome Tom! Congrats! Tom #1233773

ANN VARELIS 4/6/2005 11:57:46 AM

Thanks Tom. Sorry I hadn't read those responses. Got the basic idea now and I shall go practice(weather or not I can come up with same results is another matter ofcourse!) #1233784

Wendy Stevenson 4/6/2005 12:34:19 PM

WOW, an absolutely amazing image!! Awesome work on this Tom!!! A most deserved POTD!!!! #1233827

Susan C. Barnes 4/6/2005 1:39:29 PM
