Til the Cows Come Home

While looking back through one of last year's (2012) catalogs, I came upon this image taken one full year ago. It was an early morning drive through farm country and I saw the cows milling about not far from the property's fence. I slowed the vehicle, grabbed my camera off of the passenger seat and grabbed the image below right out of the car window. Somehow it ended up collecting dust on the external hard drive while it awaited it's fate. Deciding to get it off of the storage drive and do something with it, I processed it with the result below.

While processing, the image was given a generous crop to reduce the large sky caught within the frame and cleaned up a bit using Topaz's Denoise 5.

A black and white conversion seemed in order for this timeless scene,  so I ran the image through Topaz's Black & White Effects.

Until next time, thank you so much for visiting!
