Pano view of Loch Leven in the Highlands of Scotland. We stayed with our mobile home near Glencoe at the other side of the lake, but we had a similar view. If we just could have left out the “midges”…
Adjustment layer “Black and White” and Preset “Infrared”. The more green and blue colors in your RAW file, the more black and white is created by this little tweak. Turning an old camera into “infrared” would be another (but expensive) option. This turns the bright sunlight hours during daytime into a “productive” time zone for photography.
Fog… Filter… it is time for Fiction. The top half of the image is untouched. I love the red and the blue and had to do something to eliminate the green. Not all of it, but most of it. This flying tree is an “all the best and recover soon wish” to Sherry! 🙂 Reinhold
Some of you know that I like to play around with Photoshop. Since I decided to concentrate at landscape photography there is no need and not much room left to create compositions in post. I start a “landscape fiction series” with this post. So… in between my regular landscape photography posts… I will create a Photoshop composition of 2 or more photographs I have taken.
This one is made of a lighthouse located in the harbour of Bremerhaven and sand dunes at the beach of Schillig. A lighthouse should have a beautiful spot at the coast.
