This is the fifth in the series of Before and After images that shows what came out of the camera and what subsequently went on paper.
This image came from a late spring sunset at Devil's Garden, outside of Torrey, Utah. It is also one of the most popular of the Transformed Landscape series that marks a departure from the more realistic landscape photography that is commonly seen. This shows the stages of change into a unique work of art.
