About the Image(s)

Here comes the sun. Canon r6, RF16 f2.8 at 1/200 sec, f18, ISO 250, Neewer Q3 flash through a small shoot through umbrella at camera left on a small light stand for fill light.
Another shot of one of my dogs (Tosh) during one of morning walks- had the gear with me hoping for a vibrant sunrise which didn't really eventuate.
The image was taken for a weekly challenge group (52Frames -Week23 'Line from a song'. I chose 'Here Comes the Sun' The Beatles).
Initial editing in LR - used the Adobe Landscape white balance preset, global highlights and shadows adjustments, then various adjustment layer masks to further
adjust highlights/shadows/colour grading etc different sections of the image (ie subject mask, sky mask, backgound, etc).
Sent to PS for removal of distracting objects (sticks/stones etc), dodge & burn etc. Used Nik Color Efex to tweak some global and targeted tonal & colour adjustments.
Back to LR for final tweaks, crop and sharpening.

Following your comments and suggestions on my image this month I looked you up in group 20 and found this splendid image. It works so well as both a beautiful portrait of your dog and a a creative landscape.   Posted: 07/07/2024 05:07:00

Nice doggie portrait. You carry a lot of gear for a morning walk but it was put to good use in this image. Getting the lighting correct when combining a landscape with strong backlighting and a portrait is not easy. And is there a large bird in the mid-ground drying its wings?   Posted: 07/08/2024 08:56:10
