10/18/2010: Mousam fire

There is a little park around what used to be a skating pond on the banks of the Mousam River in Kennebunk Maine. It is mostly now a picnic and dog walking area, but it also provides access to the rapids for fly fishermen…and photographers. This little foliage tapestry is from the bank of the Mousam looking upstream.

Canon SD4000IS zoomed into its max 106mm equivalent for framing, f5.3 @ 1/250th @ ISO 125. Foliage program (yep. Canon puts a foliage program on all its P&Ss, and it works!, tweaking the sensor response and internal processing to retain all the richness of the fall color).

I shot with the SD4000IS because this was taken on a grocery run and it is what I grabbed on the way out the door.

Processed in Lightroom with some Fill Light, Blackpoint right, added Clarity and smidge of Vibrance, and Sharpen narrow edges preset.

    I like the compo but maybe the reds are a bit over the top..

    With all due respect (to the Maine foliage show 🙂 on my monitor the reds are as seen. If over the top it is nature’s fault not the processing. 🙂
