Joao Martinho February 13, 2008

Thanks for your comments. The only filter treatment was a basic graduated light yelow in the upper sky to add contrast to clouds and intend to bring additional light to this gray day. I also have added some shadows and a bit of contrast. All this from a basic digital editor. #5488529
