I seem to be into paths and roads this week. I took this one at Brookside Gardens when I was hiking around the giant lake I discovered while I was there on my last visit. I just liked the light coming through the trees.
This image is one of those I like just because of the light but it’s really not the greatest photo ever. I shot it with my Sony RX10 which I genuinely love as a camera but it has its issues. Color fringing is a major problems and it will do some funky things with blues if it doesn’t meter or white balance correctly. Still, for a smallish body and a 24-200mm 2.8 lens it’s damn nice as a chuck it into your bag and you can shoot almost anything type of camera.
When I went to edit this it was all about the light. Did my usual adjustments and then wanted to make that light pop. So I added a quick filter using Intensify CK then masked it in at various opacities. I then had to fix the aforementioned color fringing and weird ass blue sky problems. The fringing is easy, the sky was a hue/saturation adjustment in Photoshop. Want to bump the “warmth” up a bit so a quick run through Color Efex and done.
