29/01/11 'Wolds edge' I took this shot on my muddy farm-track walk with Pip earlier in the week in the hope of creating this sort of image from it. Among other image creation studies this year, I really want to get to find my way easily around PSE and discover much more of it's potential (without reading instruction manuals!) <br />
Here I've simply converted to B&W adjusted the RGB levels then contrast, finally created a border by inverse feathered selection using the rectanglar marquee tool. When I viewed it in picasa I decided the sky was still too blown out so tweaked it using the gradient tool. <br />
I'm quite please with the result now and welcome comment, suggestions & tips for future processing attempts.<br />

For those local to the area I am offering a framed A4 print of this image if you can say where it was taken.
