Mousam Under Sky

We have spent a few days in the Macro world, so lets step back and take the wider view. The Mousam River runs a quarter mile behind our home and I often take a walk that includes a stretch of its bank. The double arch is a railroad bridge. Of course it is the sky that holds most of the interest in this image, and I have cropped it accordingly. And, though I know I say this a lot, this image really does look better at a larger size, available by clicking the image to open it on

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/1000th @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky. A touch of Fill Light. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and a bit of Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. This is, by the way, a classic example of how I process landscapes, as detailed in the little video at Quick Dramatic Landscapes in Lightroom
