Congratulations Dennis!!!

Two things drew me to Allaire Village in eastern New Jersey. The first was some of Denise's images. Then, I learned that it was a restored early 19th century site for the production of iron. Metallurgical engineering is the thing that interfered with my photography and digital imaging for a lot of years, so I just had to see it for myself.

This image, taken in early June, is being posted mainly as a precursor to the next one, which will show up tomorrow. It'll be an autumn version conjured up in Photoshop.

9 exposure HDR
late afternoon
ISO 1000 (because of the breeze, small aperture, and nine exposures), f/22, 19mm

Topaz Simplify BuzSim with reduced saturation
Snap Art Stylize for a bit of detail along some of the edges (better than the edges I could get with Simplify, and has become my go-to for edge detail)
Flypaper Textures texture to replace a blah sky
Photoshop warming filter, levels, curves, and a uniform gradient vignette around the entire image
