About the Image(s)

The early morning sun illuminates late summer changing foliage on Grenlie Lake and the calm still water reflects the orange colors. It was my first venture into Skunk-Foster State Natural Area after the first hint of autumnal change and glad I chose early morning so as to get a light fog over the lake’s surface near the trees. Technical info: ISO 100, f/10, 1/20 sec., -1 step, manual exposure, 150 mm, pattern metering. Usual initial processing through PS and LR, then into TopazStudio where I used two presets, then back into LR for finishing.

Trey, like myself, I can tell you have spent many years with film cameras. In camera you have nicely composed a lovely shot that needs little modification in post-processing. The mist and the play of golden tones reflected in the pond make the viewer want to linger with this image for a long time.   Posted: 10/07/2020 11:21:19

To my eye Trey you have done excellent work in post-processing with the hue, saturation and brightness of the trees and the Lillies. I feel you have left just the right amount of background pines to create a "supportive" background for the Lillies in the foreground and the leaf-bearing trees in the mid-ground.   Posted: 10/12/2020 18:47:23
