It has to be confessed that I am NOT a morning person. AT ALL!!
So that is my excuse for the fact there are only two sunrise shoots in my collection. However both were excellent mornings and I don’t want to spoil my luck 🙂
This is an image taken at Taylors Mistake from 2012 when I did a Sunrise Workshop with Rob Dickinson (who I met in person for the first time).
Today was a bit cold and unpleasant so I spent some time reacquainting myself with images in my archives, and realising how most of them have never been processed. Now I have more skills and better software some time should be spent on revealing some of the undiscovered gems that have not yet seen the light of day. Like this image!
Post Processing steps:
1. Tweaked exposure, highlights, shadows etc globally
2. Added a Grad ND over the sky and bought up more sky detail
3. Added some presets to improve colour and contrast
4. Added a radial filter to slightly brighten the foreground area.
Because I can, here is a Topaz Impression oilpaint version too 🙂 Click to see the big version
I like the original image but I really like how Impression adds a new dimension to this image – do you agree? Is it something you like too?
Or do you prefer your images unadulterated 🙂
