This was taken at the DPC GTG on 11/19/05. Shot in RAW(My fist entry from a original RAW)
I know I put it was taken with the kit lens but thanks to tjmueller for letting me borrow his AWESOME LENS

I cloned out a bright spot on the barn from the sun.
I then played with levels and bumped the cyan and blue sat up to about +15
I then used Kevin Riggs' Layer Tutorial on working with layers to brighten the barn and tree line (they were both pretty dark)

Once that was done I bumped the sat. in cyan and blue up again to about +20 each.
Added the border.
Save for web

A big thanks to my friend Jennifer( Jenesis) for working through my stupidity on the tutorial Kevin wrote. It was not Kevin just me. I think she might have wanted to slap me a few times. Godd thing we live so far apart. Either way thanks Jen you are a life saver.

Too bad we can't control the clouds, eh? You know I think it's beautiful. :-)

nice sky. wish the color could have been more uniform across the top (not that I expect you to control the weather or anything. ;))

Think WB is strange, litle redish. I also think this image lacks more sharpness and clearer point of interest.

this is so similar to Days of old and looks like the same location and same photographer, but I still like it.

Uneven sky bothers me a little but all in all solid clean shot.

Nice. Perhaps the barn could have been more of an element in the picture? Also, the sky seems a little blown out.

No real pof comes to me, maybe a little more saturation would have highlighted a point.
