Curve Ahead

Curve Ahead, originally uploaded by Thomas Gehrke.

I went to visit the parents this past November and Dad took us driving around the county with the express purpose of finding some interesting photographs. This was a happy accident and another in my "Through the Windshield" series. (OK, it's not a real series. But it does seem to be a trend.)

I love roads and driving so I personally enjoy the feeling of this shot. Your milage may vary.

A bit of work went into this, believe it or not. The image was rotated a bit clockwise and then cropped to focus on the road and avoid some power lines. I removed some distracting elements, made some targeted exposure adjustments, curves adjustments and then sharpened with Topaz Detail 2.
