    This site just makes me smile everytime I visit. Thanks!

    Very nice. Looks like something created in a darkroom. I wish you would explain this shot for us. Where, how, and what is the background? It’s a cool effect but not sure how you did that digitally. I worked in darkrooms for almost 7 years in the 90’s and this looks dodged and burned to me. That’s fun stuff, workin’ in darkrooms.

    T ~ I always like it when my digi shots look like darkroom/film, so thanks. This was quite simple ~ background is sky, sun is behind Charlie, I just increased the contrast a bit and added the vignette, plus a little diffusion (I LOVED diffusion in the darkroom; digitally it’s just copy background layer, filter > blur > diffuse, play with the amounts, then lower opacity of that layer while sharpening the background layer.)

    It looks like an old-time photograph to me, probably because of the sepia. You could almost call it “Grandfather Coyote”!

    Thanks Shreve. I’m not up on my digital as much as you though. Ya kinda lost me there… I do love playing around with my microsoft digital image suite (from 2006!) on my pics. It’s a good creative release.
