Challenge: DPL Album Cover (Advanced Editing V*)
Collection: Nature & Views
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
Location: Blue Ridge Parkway, VA
Date: May 12, 2007
Aperture: 1:20.0
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/80 second
Galleries: Landscape, Rural
Date Uploaded: May 13, 2007

Taken from the Blue Ridge Parkway between Buchanan and Roanoke, VA. We had some strong thunderstorms pass through the area and I couldn't resist driving up to the parkway to try and capture some of the leftover mist & fog.

I know that "religion" is not a wise "public" topic, but I couldn't resist entering it under that guise - the image just fit too perfectly. My guess is that the DPC voters won't find it as engaging as I do, but I'm pleased with the shot and the presentation. [I am NOT trying to preach or make fun of anyone's personal beliefs.]

Converted from RAW. PP included (MS Digital Image Pro 10 & PS 7.0): crop, clone brush to remove some sensor dust, levels/curves, selective color, channel mixer, contrast, dodge/burn, resize, sharpen, save for Web.

My fifth favorite in this challenge. I like the composition of the photo and placement of text, and really think it fits with a gospel theme. 10.

Here is another shot that I can see as being an actual album cover. I can almost hear the infomercial now, "But wait! If you order now we will give you the newest album by DPL absolutely free. Hurry, supplies are limited." Great shot.
