Riding the Rays

Riding the Rays

This was one of those “ZOMG! look at that light” type moments – I took about 10 shots but because of the low light it was hard to grab at ISO100 hand-held. A dusty road with sun-beams streaming through is always a photogenic scene.

The original was slightly over-exposed and washed out so required a lot to get it a lot more neutral. Duplicated layer with a black and white treatment (soft-light blend) to balance the warm color, dodge and burn, USM, levels, curves, vignette and crop.
