I love the colors! I would almost like to see this without the road/rail...then the image would look like an abstract, color field painting!

I tried, but believe me it doesn't improve the photo. Without the rail it sinks into the mass of pictures with simular setups. The rail makes the landscape unreachable and symbolizes 'passing through'.

The colors really grab your attention and hold it. That's pretty cool.

This is an awesome pic. FWIW I think the railing adds character. Colors are exceptional.

Something I'd try if you haven't yet: After making a duplicate image for safety purposes, flatten the original image (if more than one layer), duplicate the BG layer, invert it and set the blend mode to "Exclusion." Then combine the two layers with a layer mask populated with the clouds / difference clouds filters. We're talking colors to the 9th power!

Hi Danny,
I was aware of the awesome colours you get in using the cloud filter. I tried what you suggested but the massive amount of red in the pic gives up an equal amount of blue when you invert the picture. Set to the mode of exclusion the colours start to cancel eachother out when you try to blend them. You end up with total inversion on the one end, a gray area in the middle and the normal pic at the other end. I tried other modes and the cloud filter There is a snag to the cloud filter too; it is a random filter so everytime you use it you get a different result. Hard to control. In my gallery is a picture with a little devil. I used the same filter in that picture to get the background right and to get some smoke in front of the little boy. It worked out nicely but was really hard to reproduce. If anybody wants to use that particular filter I'd suggest to save the photo first; right before you use the filter and make note of the foreground- and backgroundcolour at that moment. For those are the three items the filter uses:
Foregroundcolour-backgroundcolour and the colours in the photo. Then; use the filter and keep on trying it out untill you've got what you want. Save the result and make a copy. For whatever you did, you won't be able to do it again with exactly the same result. Having noted down the back- and forgeground colours and working from a earlier saved copy might get you close but no cigar!
