You captured the essence of the scene so well. The road leading you eye up into the house, the early morning light highlighting, the fall colors. How did you find this scene? Exploring the area early in the morning?

Thank you very much for you kind comments and praises which give me a lot of encouragement. When my friend, Wayne, told me that this picture won POTD, I was in Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, NM taking pictures of Snow Geese, Sandhill Cranes, etc. This good news made my day and boosted my motivation to bring back a lot of beautiful pictures. Thanks again!

Hsihao, I really enjoyed this photo and was wondering if you can shed more light on your processing in CS to create the color impact. Do you use layer blending, certain filters, HDR, etc?


Kevin #5179933

HSIHAO LUNG December 07, 2007

Hi Kevin,

I started with nik Color Efex Pro Polarization, Pro Contrast, and Reflector Gold filters. Then enhance each individual colors. Finally added a little bit saturation. That's all about it.

December 10, 2007

Hi Hsihao:

Thanks for the quick response and insight into your work flow. You do wonderful work.

Cheers.... #5190829
