I took this picture on a recent trip to San Diego. This is an urban area with a lot of apartments and condominiums. Note the red surfboard highlighted on the balcony. In almost any other area of the country you would have a bicycle on the balcony, but this is San Diego.
This image was heavily backlit. I used the adjustment brush in Photoshop CS5 to highlight the surfboard. The adjustment brush is an amazingly helpful tool.
