Once There Was...

Summer. Not much left these days, but i decided to not post another fall photo today ;)

 

Another one from my bale of straw series i forgot to post earlier

 

Technique/Processing

 

Yes, it's a DRI again and again automatically merged in Photoshop using Mean Stacking Mode from Photoshop's Smart Objects.

 

Cross Processed using Curves (just dragged the R,G and B curves as long till i was pleased with the colors) and the added the always nice glamour glow to the sun to make it softer.

 

Finally i decided to strengthen the shadow of the bale by creating a new empty layer in overlay mode and painting with a black brush at 35% opacity.
