Goodbye Green and Blue

I am flying back to frigid Maryland today after 3 days in Florida. So why not post a picture that will help remember what warm feels like.

This was taken on Sanibel Island pointing toward Fort Myers, Beach in the distance.

This is from the archives too and I never published this one. I took it with my Ricoh GR when I had it. Lovely camera and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fixed lens camera. The lens and sensor combo can’t be beat. I got the Sony RX100 and that became my compact of choice. If it wasn’t for that I would have kept the GR.

When I went to edit this it was all about the progressive color layers. I debated on a 16×9 crop but I liked sky so I kept it. I used gradients to bring out the texture of the water and the features underneath it. Then the usual curves to put contrast back in then dodging and burning as needed.

Enjoy.

One thought on “Goodbye Green and Blue”

  1. I enjoyed my photographer son visiting at Christmas. He is a great photographer but also an excellent cook. It is a joy to have him visit. Wish he visited more often or lived closer. We have hot weather in SW Florida and this Christmas was no exception. One can put out snowmen and winter season (Santa) on their lawns to pretend it is very cold outside. Regardless of the weather, it is nice to have such beautiful water all around us. The Gulf and the Caloosahatchee River. Both are great to boat, fish and swim in. Much to see and enjoy while visiting or living here. I enjoyed.
