This was fun!!


********************
Wow!! Thanks!! I didn't really expect top 10 - I watched it bounce back and forth during the week between 6.9 and 7.0 - All I really wanted was that 7.0 to stick .... I am thrilled with both placement and score!!

Process - this is two shots - one of the barn and one of an early morning sky. Both taken the same day. I used overlay on the sky and contrast masking on the barn. NI,levels, Curves,hue/sat, selective color, unsharp mask and dodge and burn.

beautiful photo !

It seems like if the shot was taken from two-three steps to the right, the angle would have been perfect. Nonetheless it is still beautiful!
