Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel - Atlantic City
How many times have you worked on an image for a few days and the minute you post on a social network page or blog or other media a thought enters your mind with a new processing idea - countless times for me. That and going back in the archives and wondering how you missed an image in the first place...something I suggest everyone do from time to time...

The Ferris Wheel image today fits both of these criteria. It has been in the archives for quite some time - very much overexposed but with bit and pieces of color. After working on the image for several days it dawns on me to make a composite using one of my cloud images. PS: it is always helpful to save clouds and texture images in a folder for just this purpose.

So after an hour or so I think I have it right, hit return and send it off into the cyber world. Needless to say that second I did that I realize it was the color that drew me into the image in the first place, and, of course, now have to go back and mask in the color...
