Solar works great here Tom, the clouds have got a magical, surreal feel to them

Great mood for the old garage Tom, the clouds look like a raging river, great effect.

Very cool image, Tom.
I'm with Doug on the river look of the sky. Surreal.

A wonderful image, Tom.
How come it doesn't look a bit "solar" to me?
Could it possibly be that I'm not fine-tuned to the subtleties of the process? (C'mon, laugh; that was damn funny!)

Ahh yes, I have the same shot but from a different angle. McCarty, NM is teeming with old abandoned structures and relics from a bygone era. I could get lost there for days. Nicely composed, Tom, and great processing.

Charlie you did not read my 400 page book on SOLAR? until you do, you cannot take the final test . . . . . .
actually, much of the output depends upon the imput - both from the original image and my efforts. thus some end up as Soft Solar. but glad you like.
