About 70 north of my location there is a town that has a very unique park. The highlight of which is an amazing foot bridge that is actually a working Sun dial. It also offered an opportunity for some really interesting photos. See if you agree.









And here is the full view.

I go the second one hands down. I do like the color and detail of this shot. What did you do as far as PP?

I definitely need to check this out when I get back to California. Been going out to Bodega Bay the last four times so this will be quite the change of pace. Haven't been to Redding for fifteen years.

Thanks Tom and Joe,
PP for that shot was done in Photoshop Elements 4.0. I started by cropping to 8x10, then I reduced noise at Max (10) , then I used USM with settings at amount 25% Pixel radius 80.0 which added a little boost to color and contrast, I used the adjust smart fix at about 50% and finally I think I tweeked the levels by moving the right hand slider of the histogram to the left a bit. I think those were the steps.
This bridge and the Turtle Bay Exploration Park are a really nice facility. I am glad we drove the 70miles to see it. I will deffinately be going back. There were many more photo ops. waiting.
All the best,
Steve
