This was done post process with Photoshop. I used the colorize feature of hue & saturation and the desatured to the degree that I liked. Then I used channels to get the contrast and balance as I liked it. Then a second layer was used with Gaussian blur at 25 and opacity somewhere around 40% or 50%. I also did some burning and dodging. I hope that this answers your question. Thanks for getting me off my butt to add new images to my gallery. I'm glad you like the image. #3010982
