About the Image(s)

Taken in early November, Wastwater is a large deep lake in the UK Lake District National Park, surrounded by some of the highest peaks in England. Taken on a typical Lake District day with low cloud shrouding the hills and raining steadily, with my Fuji XT2 with 50-140mm f2.8 lens plus 10 stop ND filter at 98mm, 30 sec,f16. Taken into Lightroom, horizon straightened and some water marks on filter removed or cropped off then the image was lightened up. In Photoshop the reds and greens on the hillside were intensified and then 3 masked B & W adjustment layers used to convert to mono. A masked curves adj. layer was applied to lighten up some shadows on the foreground rocks. The image was sharpened with High Pass.

I like the mood that this image portrays, but the rocks in the front stop my eyes a bit. Maybe if they were toned down a bit that would help.   Posted: 12/03/2019 15:42:45
