Rural Longmont, Colorado

I think I found heaven, and I think I found where God paints the skies. I wish every Summer evening could be like this....

Minolta 18-200mm lens
Fotodiox CPL, Tobacco Grad, GND
Tripod and shutter release cable

I hope you all like it
John

actually not to much PS work in this, just sharp lenses...I don't use PS much these days, everything is almost done entirely in Lightroom, exception would be resizing for web and sharpening. Used a Tobacco Grad ND in this shot.

Incredible sky, John! Wonderful use of the NGD filter... I know I've said it elsewhere, but must people don't know how to use those effectively. This is an ideal example of the right way to do it. I always love your amazing shots of the sunflower fields... I've never seen anything like that. Excellent work, as always, my friend.
