Challenge: Transportation IV (Extended Editing*)
Collection: Portfolio
Date: Oct 4, 2020
Date Uploaded: Oct 4, 2020

Hubby had MY transportation all two weeks since his car is loaned out to an offspring.

So, I had no way to shoot for any of this until the day before rollover.

I shot on Saturday and edited on Sunday.

This was fun, but I wish I'd had more time to think things through.

I finished. I entered. I stared at it.
No fence shadow!

This is why I need more time, Hubby! Not to edit, but to stare at it afterward and see what's missing.

Only took a minute and a half, at most, to add the shadow, but what an important minute and a half! Ha!

Any way. Here it is.

Until I stare at it for a while longer.


ETA: Stared a while and added the cat and shadow.

Then, I was finished.

Hubby came home and I asked him if anyone was driving the truck (after he'd looked at it.) He said, "No."

So, I made the person more prominent.

I hope no one else comes home. :D

ETA: Answer to the anonymous commenter... (thanks!!) I used Photoshop and Color Efex.

Lydia, this is so well done and totally deserves a Blue ribbon. Congrats!
I forgot to say, you are giving Gyaban a run for his money :)

Love your creativity. No doubt the blue in this challenge. Glad you mentioned the cat. I didnít see him/her at first. That fence is really cool! Just an outstanding image.

Yayyyy, Lydia!! This is so good! I thought I was the only one who stared and stared and always find something I missed. But this! It is perfection!
