    This is a picture taken with my D70 of a road in Pitt Meadows.

    Did I go overboard? I'm never sure when enough is enough. :dunno:

    the original looks a little dark, but you fixed that easily. Your color looks off to me though....a little on the cool side

    I would keep the mountains and the grass the same in the before picture and just lighten up the trees and the sky a little bit.

    In reality, the day wasn't quite as foreboding as the original pic suggests, and there was a great deal more detail visible in the trees.

    The problem was that the overcast sky was throwing off the exposure of the darker trees.

    If I had a tripod, I would have done a few different exposures and combined them in that HDR process (or whatever it's called).

    I like the sky and mountains in the orginal, but the road, grass and trees of eof's.

    Here, I combined eof's with my original in Photomatix.

    The result is actually closer to what I would have liked in the first place.
