A couple of weeks ago, I went on an around-town photo shoot. I'd been itching to take some pictures of Vulcan, the big cast iron man that stands atop Red Mountain, but the sun was not my friend that day. The pictures left something (better lighting) to be desired.
So I played in Photoshop instead. I kind of like the outcome.
I think the dramatic effects reinforce the iron man's reputation as god of the fire.
Last night, I drove home by the light of a beautiful full moon. I tried once again to take a picture of the night sky. My camera is just not powerful enough...so using one of the almost totally black photos I played in Photoshop until it looked like this:
