I am flying back to frigid Maryland today after 3 days in Florida. So why not post a picture that will help remember what warm feels like.
This was taken on Sanibel Island pointing toward Fort Myers, Beach in the distance.
This is from the archives too and I never published this one. I took it with my Ricoh GR when I had it. Lovely camera and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fixed lens camera. The lens and sensor combo can’t be beat. I got the Sony RX100 and that became my compact of choice. If it wasn’t for that I would have kept the GR.
When I went to edit this it was all about the progressive color layers. I debated on a 16×9 crop but I liked sky so I kept it. I used gradients to bring out the texture of the water and the features underneath it. Then the usual curves to put contrast back in then dodging and burning as needed.
