    43 mm.  1/800.  F8.  ISO 250.

    This is called “Standin' on the Corner.”  It's got some of everything (people, buildings, utility wires, mountains) hopefully merging into a cohesive composition.  I did flip it horizontally.

    Maureen a nice scene showing what the third world has to offer. Dusty roads and poor housing with guys stood around doing very little it seems. Could be the Philippines! Fota's cannot reproduce the smells which is maybe a good thing.

    So cropped slightly from bottom and right. Too much third world is overkill. In Camera Raw lifted shadows and further lifted in Photoshop. Then the NIK recipe I told you about which is Skylight filter High Key filter and Lighten/Darken Edges filter made into a recipe I use for many outdoor shots. Boosts color and adds just a little sharpness. Let me know if you agree with edits. If you boost the Dynamic High Key setting it will lift shadows even further should you wish.

      Will you share your recipe? Is it like a PS action?

        Jay the three Nik filters are detailed in my answer to Maureen. Yes once in a recipe they are applied automatically to an image so in effect act like a PS action. With Nik you can open each filter in the recipe and fine tune it to suit the image you have open

    Really nice photo. The leading lines with the buildings leading to the mountains and clouds is nicely captured…

    I really like the colours and the story, Maureen.  Nice shot!  If you really like power and telegraph lines, then India is the place.  Have seen an image with 6/7 times the amount showing here or in your other image, where you mention them.

    Hi Maureen, I like the vibe in the image – it gives the real feel of the place. I like what Billyspad has done by bringing out the details and showing the people in the image 🙂

    Thanks all!  I have re-processed the image and it looks very similar to Billyspad; so much that I won't bother to post it.
