Canon 20D with 16-35mm @ 29mm
ISO 100 f/13 1/125
And, here's how I got there in the digital darkroom...
I took this photo on a foggy winter morning. As you can see by the SOOC RAW image (with no adjustments) the contrast in the scene was very low:
I did a little tweaking in ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) and came up with this. (Admittedly, not a huge difference):
I opened the image up in Photoshop CS5 did the following:
-Removed the twigs, etc. on the bottom left
-Added three textures from darkwood67 (see Layers Palette screenshot for more details)
-Ran Quick Edge Burn action (opacity 35%)
Most interesting to me was how the "Divide" Blend Mode eliminated much of the edges of the image. I didn't erase them (except for the twigs) - they just completely disappeared when I changed the Blend Mode on that layer to "Divide".
Here's a screenshot of my Layers Palette:
Now, go out and texturize something!
