About the Image(s)

Fall’s morning fog in rural Waupaca County added a mystical veil over the rolling hills. I drove along Iola’s back roads looking for a composition that would capture the serenity of the countryside and the flavor of the season. The red barn stood prominently; its vintage charm enhanced by the soft light diffused through the mist. Nearby, a modern hunting stand marked the edge of the woodland, adding an interesting contrast to the scene. The fog, barn, and hunting stand weren't just subjects; they were storytellers of a cultural tradition that stretched over decades. Tech stuff: f/9, 1/50 sec., ISO 100, 166mm focal length, pattern metering. Processed RAW via LR then used PS and Topaz Studio for adjustments. The challenge was to keep the fog while bringing out the brilliance of the foliage. Though the light was darker that morning, I opted for a lighter, brighter version.

Trey, you accomplished your goal of keeping the colors and lightness while not losing the fog. Indeed this image tells a story while it shares the beauty of the heartland. I hope people in your area are aware of the splendid work you do.   Posted: 07/08/2024 15:52:52
