We just pretend it's unicorn poop! But no, we're exporting it to China. Apparently it's much cleaner than their sulfurous coal.

I think I'll sharpen the second one up a bit and see how it looks,...

Blurry rejections

Went back to the RAW and did some things different. Dialed down the sun, less noise reduction, tried to get rid of the "through a window" feel. I don't have a lens filter,...

I didn't want to crop too tight since i don't have much wiggle room in regards to pixels. I'll try again, if not for RP then my personal collection. Still need to get down the vertical crop though.
