My apologies for not posting for the last few days but I've been working on my latest tutorial – Photoshop for Night Photography. It's still not finished, but the end is definitely in sight and it will be published at some point tomorrow.

Anyway, as it's almost finished, and I've been neglecting the kids for the last few days, we decided to head out to the Forest of Bowland this afternoon. It was cold, and damp, but we did have a good time, and I did get this shot. In terms of the post-production: there's some added blur, I've done some work on altering the colour palette, and I've lightened some of the darker areas of the image.

If you're interested, the somewhat less interesting original is here:

And I know I say this quite often, but as this is a bit of a departure from my usual style (or styles) I would definitely be interested to hear what you think of it.
