This is the "actual" location from last week's treasure map.
I'm not enthusiastic about how it came out, but on the plus side with some additional tweaking I think the B&W version for the Tweak & Toss I'm working on came out a lot better.
The idea on this map is that you are trying to find a particular clearing in a particular valley. In this area the treeline is right about 9500 feet and I tried to stunt the trees at the treeline. I made a few errors with said trees and while I did a decent job cleaning things up, they came out way too bright for my taste. Since my desired end product was going to be B&W, with the color more for this blog, I decided I didn't want to have to redo all the trees again, especially since this was set for a heavily forested area.
The valley is about 6 miles across and is ringed with seven peaks. All but one peak extend above the treeline and are usually covered in snow.
I tweaked my transparency for the trees as well as the B&W conversion and I think the second map came out better,
I'm only putting up the color version this week. You can get it by clicking on the lead-in graphic or by using this link.
