This Is WAY Photoshopped
I sure enjoy all the filters in Photoshop and the Photomatix App. This is very intense and I used a grunge filter in Photomatix and added some highlight and shadow smoothing. When I took it into photoshop, I cropped it and tried to smooth the clouds, but I think I gave up on that. I gave it a motion blur. There’s also three smart filter layers of varying degrees of opacity and they contain Color Burn, Surface Blur, and Motion Blur. Of course this is not what Mt. Garfield looks like, but in this picture, it sure is intense! What fun.
