You did an incredible job Darren! You brought out the brilliance and personality of this beautiful landmark of the parkway. I too am a huge fan of Mabry Mill, as I live not too far north of it (right off the parkway)!!

I have the mill posted on my gallery as well. Three of my four children are sitting down facing it. I turned it black and white. I photographed several other things there too.

I love your work of art! Your talent in PS really shines. The manipulations you implemented are truly spectacular. Plus the pov of the capture is completely perfect! Just awesome!! Thank you for sharing it with us as well as your wonderful gallery :) #3062734

Yep Mabry Mill along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Done a few things here. I used monochrome effect, faded color back in at about 70% then history brushed some areas back in a bit darker. Added the dreamy effect with a black tint to give more color, and then added the buzz and resharpened after I did all of this.
