    Hi all,

    extreme processing I know, but I have a certain fondness for the aesthetic...

    Amazingly done.

    When it's displayed full screen cropped by tapatalk on my Android phone, the composition hits more, why not try cropping it? My resolution is 480*800

    It's really a matter of personal preference/vision - but I see what you were getting at with the crop. I like the shot both ways. Cropped emphasizes the clouds more, the full shot gives a feeling of space.

    yeah different strokes for different folks as far as cropping and what you want the image to say...

    RevBob got what I was seeing....the clouds and the sense of space...

    ummm from memory...

    curves and crop in Aperture
    bw conversion in SFX pro...think I added an orange filter, bumped structure slightly, added a #1 coffee tone, then a rather heavy vignette...(all of that was done in SFX pro2)

    maybe a few other small steps, but thats the gisit of it....
