On Guard in the Fog
2011 - Day 140. May 20, 2011.
My mind's eye really dictated how I processed this image. I wanted to convey the fog of course, but also the brightness of the rope and life preserver, as well as the fact that the Sun had almost burned through the fog. I usually don't use split toning techniques with colour images, but the technique seemed to fit here. I added a blue tone to the shadows and a yellow to the highlights. I used the same Lightroom settings for today's Daily Shoot submission ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/dibytes/5740356365/in/photostream ) , which was also taken on the waterfront.
