Over in ‘How I took it‘ section of the forums Michael Brown (from Macro Art In Nature) shares this image and gives a description of how he took it. The shot caught my attention when I first saw it due to it’s subtle colors so I thought it might be worth sharing here on the blog.
This is a image created with the older Canon 300D & the Canon 75-300mm lens.
I was on the edge of the pond early one morning and wanted to get some of the various grasses with the sun coming up over the pond.
It was quite foggy that morning, with the fog hanging about 3ft above the water.
I opened the lens up at 5.6, mounted the camera on the tripod, and started shooting.
This image is fairly close to being accurate.
I selectively enhanced the colors at about 25% in photoshop, and defined the sun a bit more than what was initially recorded. (Give it more of a edge)
The suns color was changed slightly from a red/gold color to a more rose/pink color, hoping to help give it a bit more of a oriental feel.
