Artist's Description

I NOTICED THIS SIGN WHILE I WAS LEAVING MY FAVORITE FISHING SPOT. THE WATER WAS LIKE A MIRROR, THE SKEY WAS CLEAR AS A BELL. SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT CLOSELY, DOES THIS SHOT SAY “DIP OR 910”? ONE WAY TO BE SURE IS TO LOOK AT IT UPSIDE DOWN. THE FUNNY PART WAS, I WAS DRIVING ALONG AND HAD TO STOP AND BACK UP TO GET THIS SHOT. I WAS ON GRIZZLY ISLAND IN FAIRFIELD CALIFORNIA, OR AT LEAST NEAR FAIRFIELD ANYWAY,,,MAYBE CLOSER TO SUISUN ACTUALLY, BUT SUISUN IS HARDER TO FIND ON A MAP. THE CAMERA OF CHOICE WAS MY EOS KISS REBEL 300D WITH MY QUANTARAY 70-300MM MACRO AF LENS. THE ROAD THAT I WAS DRIVING ON IS 1 1/2 MILES LONG AND THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE OUT HERE CALL IT THE BOWLING ALLEY. IF YOU DRIVE OFF TO THE LEFT OR THE RIGHT, YOU WILL DEFFINATELY BE IN THE GUTTERS. I TOOK THIS IMAGE INTO PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 3.0 AND RAN IT THROUGH SOME ENHANCEMENT TREATMENTS. THE FIRST WAS AUTOFIX, NEXT WAS AUTO CONTRAST, THEN AUTO COLOR CORRECTION. NEXT I DID SOME HIGHLIGHT AND SHADOW CHANGES AND AFTER THAT THERE WAS STILL THE BRITE, CONTRAST FILTERS TO USE. AFTER ALL OF THOSE CHANGES, I INVERTED THE IMAGE TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THE WATER IS THE SKY. IT’S NOT, IT’S THE WATER. THE SKY WOULD BE BELOW THE MARSH COMPOTE, BUT WHEN I SAW HOW STILL THE WATER WAS, I COULDN’T HELP BUT USE IT AS SKY.
