I saw this scene in my rear view mirror whilst driving home. Had an idea of solitude and the open road in my head when I shot it. Stopped the car in the rain, grabbed the camera and waited for one vehicle only to appear, got 2 shots. This is how I shot it with no Post Processing or Plug-In tricks. Curves, crop, contrast, USM, borders, GB, resize, borders, sfw.
For this FS I cloned out power lines in the trees and very small distraction in the sky and road as per rule set and other ribboner's I've seen do to their images without being DQ'd.
