Focal length: 58 mm
Shutter speed: -1/320 sec
Aperture: F7.1
ISO: 500
Notes: as with other similar images I start in photoshop cloning out distracting elements, playing with color saturation and light/dark levels. On this image I then used 2 photoshop 3rd party plug in filters. First is Virtual Painter 5 (I think I used the Impasto effect), and then I knocked off the rough edges with Topaz Simplify.
