Superb shot with an interesting technique. Thanks too for the link about the church - is the small one at the front the 1950s one they talk about?

Debs: NO secrecy...I notized afterwards, that I forgot to turn the ND grad filter, when taking this shot, so right side of the image is darker...then I made some "weird" arrangement in PhotoMatix Pro software...

LOL Jouko, a side grad! This effect makes it look even colder. How cold was it here at this time? I did make it to Big Sur and got a few nice ones. But not Sat. night or Sunday morning. It rained hard both times and cleared up just a little too late. But last night I finally god some good clouds and light. Though my shot today is from a previous trip last month.


12 Feb 2007 4:47PM
OK Jookoo...LOL!!!!!
