Two clicks in Photoshop. 1- Auto Color and 2- Unsharp Mask. Nice shot Barbarian. Ive been meaning to go back to the Shell station a couple blocks away at sunrise and catch the shot.

At first I thought it was "soft," but then realized that he wanted it that way - Sort of dreamy and unsubstantial. (Now I've really set myself up)

I wasnt aware this was a dream sequence shot. If it is my apologies. Otherwise I like shots that are so sharp they will cut the retina. Soft shots have been the bane in my life with all the crappy cameras I had. Soft dreamy shots were the best I could do. Thank the dog for Unsharp Mask.

There's something about unsharp mask in the Old Testiment. Leviticus?

Er, yeah, I did combine two shots, one blurred, to get that effect. But I like Bynx's sharpened version, too.

As soon as I saw Barbarian's post I recalled taking a very similar shot when we were in Arlington, Texas. I've been scanning my various hard drives looking for it...finally found it -- from 2006.

Obviously the same place but not the same location. Those street lights or lights on a bridge are not the same as Barbarians post which has stores down there.
