Canon 5D Mark II, 70-200mm F/4.0, f/32, .5 sec, iso 100
Another variation on my wave pan images today. When I first started with digital photography around 2000, I was amazed at information that could be found in the dark areas of an image. Using Photoshop I could bring out hidden details.
When I looked at the original of this image, at first glance everything looks kind of flat and gray. But I noticed subtle colors present. Which doesn't really surprise me as there are a lot of things in this area to reflect light, and seawater has all manner of critters and floatsam in it.
So using the basic sliders in Lightroom, I began saturating some of the colors, and ended up with this creation. I didn't add any colors, they were all there, but they are digitally enhanced beyond what we could see. This is a creation, art, it isn't supposed to be reality. I'm quite taken with this one. What do you think?
Also, on the continue link below you can view the original image so you can see what I started with.
