five of seven…wired

On a quiet evening in my thatch-roofed hut,

alone I play a lute with no strings.

It’s melody enters wind and cloud,

mingles deeply with a flowing stream,

fills out the dark valley,

blows through the vast forest, then disappears.

Other than those who hear emptiness,

who will capture this rare sound?

I began creating this variation of Ben’s image by merging his dng files in HDR Efex Pro. I then did a bit of touch up in Aperture (yes, I’m in mourning over Apple’s decision to stop Aperture development) before exploring various layers in Perfect Effects 9.
