This is very nice.
A little sharpening of the trees house roofs and powerlines would give it more impact.


Here's a sample I did to see if you agree.

Paul, thanks for taking the time to look at this and your suggestion for making it better. At first honestly I did not see a difference, but after close inspection I see exactly what you are saying. How did you sharpen just the trees and rooflines and powerlines? special program, paintshop, photoshop? I use the canon zoombrowser only for now.


Thanks again

Yes, I used Photoshop
First I created a duplicate layer of the image so I have two identical images in the file. Then I sharpened the top layer to the amount that looks how I want it using "unsharp mask". Then I cut away most of the area I want to leave soft from the top sharpened layer which means I can see the original under neath. Next using the "erase" tool set to around strenght 20 and a small diameter I erase along the sharp cut off edge to give a smoother transition where needed. Then I created a nother duplicate of the first layer sharpening it slightly less this layer is between the top and original. This layer provides just a few areas that needed to be not too shrp or soft like the car which didn't look quite right fully sharp so it is a combination of the medium sharp and the original car showing through also. the light streaks also don't look right sharpened so I ran the eraser along them a few times to expost the softer lower image.
I could email you the psd file if you have photoshop to view it in.

nice catch, too bad for the non-sharpining, I agree with Karifan sharpning would have improved this picture.

I like the way you have managed tot get the car lights for so long without overdoing the rest of the mage. Excellent.

You had a good first shot, you can sharpened it and make it better. The best way to get a good one was the first shot and that's the first impression. Good catch.
