Nasturtium, I really love the rich colors and shadows in your cow shot. Is that the way it came from the camera or was there post processing?

View from my office window at home.
I took this at about 7am this morning. It's HDR (Photomatix) and a bit of photoshop. It's supposed to be spring, racing towards summer, but there was more snow on the mountains than we saw in the depth of winter.
CJ Swartch - I love the last of your vulture shots.

Nasturtium, i like the rich colours in the cows image, is that some kind of gothic glow?
CJ Swartz, i have not seen a Turkey vulture before, just the european type, are they quite large?
This is one of a statue in Ayamonte Square, Ayamonte is the last Spanish town before the border with Portugal. Tiny bit of pp and lucis to dramatise and bring out some of the shadow.

Gary, the turkey vulture is large, with a naked red head, and a wingspan between 5-6 feet. From what I read, your European vultures have a wider wingspan.

Your statue image succeeds at being dramatic in diagonal composition. Your statues are also larger than U.S. statues, I believe.

I like this and I don't know why. I don't know what to do with it either.

the workflow on the cows was something like this;

steepen the a curve in LAB to emphasize the red/green

sharpen according to this;

I've made an action out of it. I usually reduce the opacity of the top layer to about 50%

It's not quite fall here yet. But there was some amazing light during my bike ride today.

Found a cow to take pictures of. :-) Gave it the 'old master's treatment'

Dutch weather is NOT co-operating for this month's RTP challenge :-(

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

Well yesterday I was walking on the Beach and saw this brown pelican taking off about 200 yards away. I had my canon Powershot and took a shot having no idea of what I got since it was bright sunlight and all I had was a led screen. But I got that fellow taking off. It probably was shot at 1/1500 of a second.
