On one of your pics:

I just removed one of the wires, but if it were my photo I would have removed most of the wires.

Great job Paul! How did you do that?
Really cool trees and I like the cloud effect in the sky.

Nice toning and color.

I had a challenge once to remove the wires on the other image and several people actually did it! This image would be a pretty tough one to take on.

Hypersat HDR like result. Was going to turn this one into a toy shot, but got lazy.

Great Job Lyle! This should be a model for a roller coaster ride.
How did you do that?

Only my mother calls me Michael. Maybe you thought I was the other Michael? lol

That's it Mike. Yeah; too lazy to do the masking for the blur blends. Had a tool, but my computer somehow lost the info for licences (a Give-a-way-of-the-day program) so had to say goodbye to a cool toy (hope it get's offered again; pretty decent with only a few clicks away from done and for a lazy filter guy, that's good for me. lol).

My kids dad who passed away was from San Francisco. His sister and dad still live there.

Of the handful of times I have been there, I never had a clear day to take pictures like this. It was always foggy or rainy. These are very nice Mike.

There is some PB Oil Paint in here, a B&W layer which has had a heavy dose of denoise and then both layers blended with the original to taste. A lot of dodge and burn before and after adding the filters was also performed to get the final effect.

BTW, thank you for posting these for us to play with, I hope to see more of San Francisco from you.

Warm Regards,

Paul
