Stained Glass Reflection

I was in this church when I noticed the light from the stained glass reflecting off the wall. Well by itself it did not make for a very interesting image. So I played around with it in PhotoShop.

Big Four Bridge Challenge

Last Sunday morning the trees were wearing white coats of heavy frost. So I just had to go out and take some pictures in the freezing single digit weather. One of my subjects of choice was the Big Four Bridge in Sidney. Shooting from the top of the hill of Children's Home Road gave me the angle and the composition that I wanted but as you can see there was a bit of fog/mist in the air that gave me this shot. I even tried using a UV and Polarize filter to no avail. I decided to take the picture anyway and see what I could do in post processing. This is what I started with.

Using Levels, Curves and a host of other tweaks I was surprised to get this.

After further review I decided upon this narrow crop for the final image.

PhotoShop is proving to be an amazing tool.
