Default The Long and Winding Road

Yes, it's exactly the same title of one of the last songs of the Beatles.

Though it has been heavily elaborated in PS it's mailny a landscape shot.

Here it comes :

P.S. :
The original shot colours were not that nice.
I tryed with levels, saturation and so for but they did not convinced me.

I decided then for a Treshold photo.
When I started trying to find out the right treshold a problem arose :
there was no a good treshold to have details on the road, the fences and the trees at the same time !

So I worked it out in the following way :
I duplicated the first layer three times.
On each of these three layers I applied the treshold filter with different settings.
-the lowest had details on the road
-the one in the middle details on the fences
-the one on the top details on the trees.

I started erasing fences and road on the top layer with a soft brush so that fences and road of the lower levels could be seen.
I did then the same with the middle layer, erasing the road.
This way I got a treshold photo which at the same time was showing detailed trees, fences and the road.

I then tried different blending modes to get a more intersting effect : the Lighten blending mode was ok for me.

As far as the first layes is concerned I have added some grain and then I have applied a diagonal motion blur.

That's all folks !

I usually do not care much for the artistic filters in ps, but you have managed to pull this one off. It is well done, and I can appreciate how much work went into this.
