Before the Coffee

This is one of my favorites pics of a scene that doesn’t really have a strong subject. It is an HDR image that I reworked in CS3. I opened the HDR and duplicated the layer and did some colorizing and changed the blending layer to “Vivid Light.” Then I created a blank layer, filled that with black and added a mask while holding the alt key. I could paint the areas I wanted to hold back the light in the image. My goal was to keep the background nicely lit to draw the viewer into the image.
