This was taken during the same afternoon, in the same location, as the image in the previous post.
Post-processing: Shot with the 5D at 17mm. I stopped the camera down quite a bit when I shot this. In post, I changed the white balance from the camera's auto-mode to add more warmth, added some vignetting, applied curves adjustments and desaturated the image overall.
Thanks, everyone! Hope 2006 is off to a great start!
