This piece is actually a rework of previous post. (I couldn't find it so I must have deleted that one -- very likely because I wasn't satisfied with the photo.) On this version, I've emphasized the shadows using the curve layer in PS - a trick I've recently learned from Craig Tanner. (I highly recommend the website The Mindful Eye, where he provides tutorials.) The technique that has been very useful.
Hope you enjoy this one. Please leave a comment as to let me know your thoughts. Take care.
