Not bad Dustin, but the square aspect seems a tad off to me. To each their own.
I like the original aspect of the photo quite well, but the I wasn't crazy about the top third of the image. The light through the upper part of the trees was a bit harsh. This was the best solution (IMO) to focus on the more pleasing portion of the image. I am processing a bit heavier right now, too, because I am using Exposure 5 as much as possible as I will be reviewing the software for Alien Skin in a few weeks.
They're paying you to review software?
They gave me the software; I am giving them a review in return. It's a rough life
Indeed. I look forward to reading your review, I know you know what you're talking about!
Thanks, my friend. I am also very blessed that Tamron just sent me a copy of the 70-200 VC to review. I've started using it today. And yes, I do have to send it back in a couple of weeks.
