Christmas in Hampden by Beth Payne

January 2022 - Christmas in Hampden

About the Image(s)

This is in Hampden, Baltimore. I wanted to highlight the Christmas decorations this part of Baltimore is famous for. I liked this reflection of the neighborhood in the Christmas ball.

I used a Canon 5D Mark IV with a 24-105 lens at F8, 105MM, 1/800 sec. I used Lightroom for editing. I first cropped the shot, decreased exposure, highlights, whites, and blanks. I increased contrast, texture, clarity, vibrance, and saturation slightly. I masked the Christmas ball and increased the red saturation and luminance. I also increased the blue saturation in the ball. I darkened the upper left corner to minimize the stick.

Happy a Happy New Year!
