New Year Sunset Tree: Parson's Beach, Kennebunk ME

White snow, orange sunset. Shot at moderate telephoto, 125 mm equiv., to set the tree and bushes against the sky. Pretty straight-forward. Programed Auto. F5.0 @ 1/500 @ ISO 100. Exposed for the sky, so it required post-processing to bring up the foreground. Mainly a lot of Fill Light in Lightroom. My standard added Clarity and Vibrance. Landscape Sharpen preset. Some noise reduction to compensate for the Fill Light. I had to desaturate the blue channel in Saturation/Luminance/Hue controls to control excessive blue in the snow.

    Again, really liking the descriptions of the Lightroom work – it’s giving me ideas for things I could do…as well as is possible in Photoshop Elements…! 🙂
