Had a revelation and decided to change the title of this print - you'll see it further in my portfolio with a different title. I like this better.

    No vector work on this one. It was originally shot in color and I was pretty excited about it. I had waited and watched the horses for quite some time before they arranged themselves in the fasion that you see in the finished product. During review of the photo and seeing the enlarged version I became displeased with sky color, to blue believe it or not; needless to say I was very disappointed. I walked away from the shot for a couple of months until I had a new vision for it. I decided to go back to my old film and print days and use a digit version of what was know as "farmers reducing agent". That was a darkroom chemical process that would essentially convert your B/W print to a high contrast image. That's what I did here except I used the digital version. After converting to B/W I pulled both the black and white contrast levels to 100%. Doing so allowed for a very distinct recreation of the trees; most of the small limbs and twigs were washed out giving the trees a "dead" look which quickly enhanced the overall look of the image and giving it that "pen and ink distinction. Thanks for all your comments. Grant
