Alone In The Light

While going through some of my photographs from last year, I came across with this one. A shot on a beautiful misty Summer morning, taken about a year ago. As the sun was rising I had my camera on my tripod and used my remote controller to trigger the camera.

Exif

Post-processing

Lightroom for color temperature, contrast and saturation. I also used one of my presets to base edit the photo: Morning Blues.

I used my Lightroom Presets to edit the colors here.

Frozen Echo

Quiet, cold and blue. It has been quite a change in the weather for the past two weeks. Cold and clear skies, now we just need this to continue so we can all enjoy it as much as possible! Here is a dual exposure vertorama taken at the coast of Finland merged together in Photoshop. Hope you like it.

Silent Elegance

It was freezing cold in Emäsalo, Finland yesterday evening. Just when the sun had set I saw this beautiful frost covered rock in the sea. I had the 10 stop B&W ND -filter on and set the exposure to 90 sec. Hope you like it.
