This isn’t a post about the Blue’s legend of that name. Instead it’s about the pond water that was muddy after rain. The water was filled with silt from the runoff which turned it brown.
I shot this in early October at Brookside Gardens on a visit there. Was just wandering around with my Nikon D810. I shot everything for HDR but I didn’t process the image that way. The natural way it came out of the camera was just fine.
Editing wise nothing special going on here. I did use layer mask to bring out some color. Then I lowered the opacity. Did some dodging and burning for local contrast and called it done.
PS – Double points if you can spot the turtle.
