Hidden Away

This was a small gazebo at the entrance of Brookside Gardens. I never got a chance to go into it because it was always full of people and trying to maneuver a tripod through a confined area isn’t fun.

In retrospect I should have used a neutral density filter or used some exposure compensation on the camera as the original was a little bright. I had to bring the levels down in Photoshop using gradients and burning. I also put a layer mask in from Macphun’s Intensify CK to just bring out some of the details. One of the joys of doing that is that it tends to turn the colors nuclear so then a quick hue/saturation mask to bring things back down. Still, it came out nicely I think.

Full resolution.

    What a nice place to hide. The Gazebo looks inviting on a hot day. This park is a treasure. I am glad you went there to capture how inviting it is to spend a day. I love the little foot bridge over the water. It would have been nice to see inside of the Gazebo but I am sure it is an inviting spot to visit. It is a beautiful park because I am seeing it through your eyes and that makes it a very nice visit for all that can not make it there in person. I saved a copy for photo display so I can enjoy it anytime.
