Photographer's Note

This is a big step for me...posting a color shot. This is just a stretch of road outside of the town I live in.

I have been inspired by Behrang (quantabeh) a ton to go out and make my normal surroundings beautiful. I started my quest of the small town with his images in my mind. Check out his stuff:

I unfortunatly don't have his skill just yet, but I wanted to try a technique I have heard of. This is the result. It is highly Photoshopped but not out of "reality" IMO. See what you think


Post Processing:
I exposed one shot for the sky and one shot for the road and then combined the two together like a panoramic.
Then I used levels, cropped, boarder, sharpened, desaturated the sky, and increased the saturation +6ish yellow and red.
