A storm approaching Barefoot Landing. I was headed to the restaurant to the top left of the photo.

I burned-in the clouds for a more dramatic effect.

Thanks for viewing.

Hi Werner,

I haven't been on line much since I got home. I actually took a nap. This is a nice view, and I like what you did with the burn-in. I haven't used that function much. Where is this at?

I put in a bid for a macro lens on line, but I'm sure I won't win, but I'm also sure I won't bid any higher.....one of these days.

I see you posted another that I missed...a better Lily than mine; I'll check her out.

Sleep well!

Quel beau iel, avec la forme de ce nuages, magique et l'ouverture bleu avec les rayons, le tout donne un trsŤ bel effet sur la route grais, grandiose.

bravo et amitiť


To be honest Verner I was uneasy about this one last night so I left it till this morning. IMHO it needed a little more work. Please do not be offended this is merely my own feelings. I like the yellow lines and your pp work but there was some thing I couldnt put my finger on so I downloaded and played with it. I have posted the workshop and hope you like.
warm regards

Hi Werner

Some burning & dodging would improve the sky, in this image. I like the doglegged street in the fg for its lead in lines. Good sharpness & the yellow kerb contrasts well against the blue black sky. Tfs!

Original foto que muestra como el cielo esta medio nublado y medio claro coincidiendo con la linea de la carretera ,bien observado
Buen trabajo
un saludo

Hi Werner,
I've always had a 'thing' for road shots, and this one caught my attention straight away. I like how the road leads around the corner, leaving us wondering what's around the bend. Interesting effect from the burn-in, I'm on the fence about whether it suits.

Personally I think this would have worked even better with the camera tilted more towards the ground so you have less sky in the photo. And maybe a slight increase in brightness within the trees so it doesn't seem so dark.

I do like the sharpness and POV here however, and I applaud you on your efforts. Hope you had a wonderful meal at the restaurant.


Hello Werner - Interesting combination of a bend in the road with a 'bend' in the weather! Great composition.
