Cut-out Toys

The children’s area at Mother’s Beach, Kennebunk ME. Not my kind of shot…but I found the shapes against the light of the sunset hard to resist. The wires make it busy…but they are part of the reality and can be considered an element of the design. I tried processing this as a direct positive…which made it essentially black and shades of orange…but I actually like this better.

Sony DSC H50 at 320mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programed auto.

Cropped top and bottom in Lightroom. Added Clarity and Vibrance and Sharpen Landscape preset.

Bound Sea at Sunset

The sun is still up there behind the clouds but the sunset effect is already happening.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/640th @ ISO 100. Programmed Auto.

Heavily post processed in Lightroom. Graduated filter effects top and bottom…dark on top, light on bottom. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Blackpoint to the right. Sharpen Landscape preset. Overall increased exposure.
