    “Country Road With Stand Of Trees”
    I was near the end of a long road trip and I saw this dirt road off the main highway. It was a good place for a pit stop as well as an interesting photo. I think I was in Nebraska.

    “Early Morning Drive”
    Here is another image from my trip out west. I believe this one is from South Dakota. I had been driving most of the night trying to get back home and when the morning came, there was this beautiful foggy light. I couldn’t really stop every time I saw a great shot, so I put on a wide angle lens and started shooting thru the front windshield.

    “My Neighbors Ginko Tree” EP-2 with tilt adapter and 28 mm Pentax lens

    I have had my eye on this tree waiting for the leaves to start falling and a dramatic dark sky, and today was the day. I think I will continue to shoot this tree as the leaves fall, if I can manage to keep my neighbor from mowing his yard.

    I like this image but rather miss the dark dramatic sky (sic) - black and yellow go so well together ...

    Glad you liked the moving train image. As there wasn't much of reflection in the window I made my own by blending a far away shot from a closer blurred tree one as per your idea.

    Lovely use of the tilt adapter, Mike - pushing the eye down to the base of the tree and the leaves. Again, a very painterly look from a master blender. The very consistent quality and look of your images are incredible.

    Re: Blends

    Thanks Uwe,Keith and Michael. And if I remember right, I ended up losing the dramatic sky because there was a huge tree behind this Ginko and I didn't like the way it looked. I guess I could of put my own dark sky in. I sure do like the tilt adapter.

    I'm pleased to hear this, Klaus. A different approach to a good image in its own right, too.
    This blending technique has always been a part of my photography; even with film I was always doing multiple exposures. Now with Photoshop the boundaries are no longer there and the only limit is the imagination.

    Great shot Michiel! Blending over a softer image with sharp textures creates wonderful tones. I spent sometime following a Peacock around a park in Prague but never did capture it the way I wanted.

    Thanks. I feel that way.

    All the base images are IR shots. The texture provides a nice finesse. All use a Sand Texture that I have uprezed in resolution by tiling. Not a simple process.

    You asked for it :-)

    This thread has yielded some awesome art like images, I did spend sometime trawling the thread but I have not really see where the blend technique is described. Is this a function of Photoshop or other?
