Wow

Wow, Russ, these pictures are incredible! I love the colors and light. Is that first picture (with the guy in it) digitally manipulated at all? It has to be... the red on the building is not possible I don't think.

Hi Jake, Because the photo

Hi Jake,
Because the photo was very backlit, I did lighten up the shadow areas and that is what happens. I should have used a desaturation wand to subdue the color so it looks more muted, and natural. By the time it runs through our press and is printed, it will look more like it should, but for the web, I should have included a different photo with the more muted color. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. .
