Travel Photograpy at Oak Alley Plantation in Louisiana

On a trip down to New Orleans we had a chance to visit Oak Alley Plantation (http://www.oakalleyplantation.com).  There were a number of other visitors there enjoying the day and touring the estate.  I only had a minute to capture this image without folks walking up and down the main walkway.  I did significant retouching in Photoshop to remove a number of dead leaves from the walkway and the grass to clean it up and remove the distractions.  I also dodged and burned the trees in order to bring out the texture and add depth to the image.
