A nice compliment coming from an artist. I am happy this is your favorite. I would have thought Cameo would of been more of a favorite, since you do many drawings. But love that you like this one. I fell in love with your latest work "In to the Wind." I used miscellaneous processes on this image in the digital darkroom. I tried to give it an impressionist look with more realism. This is one photograph starting in it's original form. However the colors were changed, adding more warmth and vibrance along with some painting, simplifying much of the fall foliage in the foreground. As well as doing some softening to edges and fixing any distractions near the no fly zones. I do paint, but occasionally I love to do digital art processes with some of my photographs.
This is gorgeous. The lighting is outstanding, great composition. Love it. I thought at first it was a painting - which is funny because people are always saying that they thought my paintings were photographs. haha Really beautiful!
