Caught this view while waiting with my Granddaughter for a school bus at the end of our driveway. The asphalt is normally a dull grey but the color-balance from morning’s warm light made the effects create this artificially enhanced gold tone. I liked that. Then, the painterly effect that is blended into the bottom is just different enough from reality to possibly fool the mind into thinking this is more than what it is. I dunno. I like it, though.
I kind of used this same technique here. Maybe this will be a trend for me for a while.
