The snow is almost melted from the storm we had about 2 weeks ago.  It is bittersweet, a fresh snowfall is absolutely gorgeous, but the after effects, especially what it looks like now, is the exact opposite!  I am glad I still have these pictures to edit though as they remind me of the beauty in that first snowfall!

I was playing around with that Grayscale Dodge and Burn Technique I showed last week.  I really do love that technique, it has to be the best way to see the depth in your dodging and burning as you work through it.  I was working on the color image and realized just how much more powerful it was in grayscale.  So I kept it that way.

Have you tried using the Grayscale Dodge and Burn technique yet?

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
