Dreamy Neighborhood (7 photos)

It is sunny, but still quite cold over here. I headed off for a neighborhood walk this morning. All photos are taken in a range of 3-5 miles from where we live. I used my old Fuji X100. It is light, small and I can put it into my jacket. I used the film simulation B&W Red, ISO L100 and the JPG format. So most of the development work is done in camera. I wanted to do something different today. I used LR for post and worked mainly with the “Clarity” slider. I normally push the slider a fraction to the right. So it will sharpen the images a bit. This time I pushed it to the left. To the ultimate left. I am still discussing this with myself. My brain doesn’t like it, but my stomach and heart does. The landscape of the Ammerland is special and I think this technique boosts this special character a bit more. Enjoy the virtual walk in my neighborhood. Hope you like it! Smiles. Reinhold
