Monday, driving home: had spend dinner with my folks at the Bird Creek campground (it’s all of 20 minutes south of Anchorage).
It was about 9pm – golden hour was just beginning. For some reason, the color version came out extremely blue and flat, despite the angles and the shadows. So I dropped it into Photoshop and opened NIK Silver Efex. A basic conversion, but I added some noise, burned in the top edge a little, and slapped on a red lens conversion.
It was interesting, this reminds me of Ansel Adam’s famous shot of the half-dome. In his book Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs, he mentions that he used a red filter on that image.
