Had an old picture of a street I didnt particuraly like. Opened it in PS and Topaz and played with it some.

The road was "detailed", while the left/right trees are mostly the original picture. The sky is fake. The original just came out black and bland. A quick google and some crappy photoshopping gave me this.

Doesn't quite seem in focus to me? And also the headlights are over exposed, and can't really say I like the composition. What lens did you use to take this shot? I like the black detail in the road though!

I agree with Matty, the headlights especially, seem overexposed. How long was the shutter open for?

Well, it was only one JPG shot to work with. And theyre stacked copies. Its a little soft because I had to sit and hold the camera on the bridge we were on. Not exactly the most stable or comforting of places. (I still dont have a tripod).

It was a tamron 17-50 on my 40d. The detail in the road was from the texture I gave it using Topaz Adjust. I like the feel as well.

Thanks guys, keep em comin

Tripod is necessary for these shots! It is possible to do it in one exposure, I find it helps if you can metre off the headlights.
