Primary Colors

Happy Sunday! Something a bit bright to celebrate the day. Early morning light coming in low and level pops the colors on this kiddy playground at Wells Harbor, in Wells Maine. The same amazing sky from yesterday’s shot…they were taken about 200 yards apart. I zoomed in a bit to isolate the play apparatus while still piling in the sky. I made a print of this and my wife said, “Those colors don’t look real to me. Did you do something to it?”  Actually, I did nothing out of the ordinary beyond my normal processing. The light did it. That is the way it looked. Which is why I took the picture. 🙂

Canon SX20IS at about 60mm equivalent. F4.0 @ 1/800 @ ISO 80. Landscape program.

Recovery for the sky in Lightroom. A touch of Fill Light. Blackpoint to the right. Added Clarity and just a tiny bit of Vibrance. Sharpen Landscape preset.

From Around Home 2010.
