Warm Day in January

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!



so perfect..how do you do it?

But here's some, haphazardly:
tire-splashed muddy ground,

Wow, hard to believe there are only two comments on this one -- all of your images have amazing beauty, but this one strikes me as special. I can't put my finger on why I like it so much, but I do. Striking and lovely.
