Canal Reflection

This is another from the unpublished archives. I shot this on one of the small canals at a regional park in Fort Myers, Florida.

One of the reasons I have been going back into the archives and not publishing my more recent stuff is because I take a Photoshop class. Well, I watch videos. It’s Ming Thein’s weekly Photoshop Workshop. After watching it I just want to go through and look for an image I never published. This leads me down to all the other images I never published for one reason or another. So I will edit a few applying what I learned. Sometimes I throw in a little whatever. It’s mainly Ming’s workflow for all my base images then I channel my inner Trey Ratcliff and go off in a weird direction. Having met Trey I can tell you he’s just like he appears in his videos.

Editing wise it’s fairly standard. I didn’t mask anything in. The image would not have held up. It was shot I believe on a Panasonic G5. While I loved micro 4/3 I much prefer the latitude I get off a full frame sensor.

Once I had the image where I wanted it I put in a curves adjustment in Photoshop then local adjustments with dodge and burn. Mainly to bring out the reflection of the boat and clouds on the water.

Enjoy.

One thought on “Canal Reflection”

  1. I like the Canal Reflections. The shadows created by the sun are fun. They give each photo that has shadows, a topside view and upside down view. I just wonder how many people go through life and never get to experience the power of the sun and the many “mirrors” that give us a fun photo. I always enjoy.
