Plenty of firsts, here, for me: First Challenge, first time using Photoshop, new camera (Christmas gift...which is almost like a 'first'), first time shooting from inside my truck while timing the intermittent wipers to get the clearest view. :-)

So my workflow was as follows:
Crop
Entire image adjustment Layers (Brightness/Contrast)
Image resize
NeatImage

Eerie and so impressive as it woos the senses to discharge its low key mood. Congratulations on your top five finish.

beautiful, erie....

Nice idea and soft misty feeling. But it also feels a bit dark, brighter levels would help. Also less central composition would be better.

Wow that's spooky...I think B&W would have worked well here. Still, very nice.

This could be a very nice shot: a scenic road and the foggy weather. But the dead-on composition is a bit boring.
