Manual 365/312 Headlong…

DSC_1151-Edit-2.JPGRemember last week, you know, when it was still light at 10pm? Well, that’s gone!

For those about to see snow, we envy you! And for you in the US who see through the metaphor, just vote, I’ll respect the outcome but you will be held to account…

And for those of you in Canada, it’s scary, you’ll get through it, you always do, but can we borrow your snow chains?….

Be safe Peeps! x

Manual 365/297 In My World…

… We have Ice in the Autumn.glassOk, a little jiggery pokery in today’s main shot but we’ll be lucky to get ice over the winter let alone in the autumn so a little bit of editing (I’ll detail what I’ve done below) hopefully will be forgiven.

When I got up this morning the sky was crystal clear, unfortunately, the higher the sun got  the thicker the clouds became and by the time I got into the gardens it was pretty much the same as yesterday so rather waiting in the same place I just carried on walking and pulled in tight.DSC_9598.jpgdsc_9569It’s still a glorious walk whatever the weather.

Right, techy bit for the main shot; 10 one second exposures, edited and the stacked in photoshop, mean tool applied to get the motion of the long exposure, unfortunately there was some movement in the trees and artifacts and aberrations from the different shots in the building and rope beside the path so I save the long exposure shot and then opened that, together with the first of the single shots as layers in Photoshop, added a layer mask and the painted through the original shot to add clarity to the trees then saved it back into lightroom and used the brush tool to reduce the dehaze and up the exposure on the water to give it the ice effect… Go me eh? ;O)

Peace Peeps! x
