Wade Into The Sunset

This is another one from Fort Myers Beach when I was back in America. The title kinda speaks for itself in this one.

Did a mild HDR edit and called it a day. Spent more time removing dust spots than anything else.

Shot on a Sony A7ii.

Enjoy.

Goodbye Green and Blue

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.

Enjoy.
