Morning Haze

Repost 8.21.11

Yesterday morning I was heading into work on a road behind our subdivision.  It was foggy and as I was driving I found the light coming through the trees with the combination of fog to be very interesting.  I stopped in the middle of the road and opened my door and shot a few pics.

This image was created using my Leica M9-P and 50mm summilux.  I initially edited the picture with Nik Software Silver Efex Pro 2.  It has a slider that allows for you to selectively bring back colors.  I did this to the road and really liked the look.  Unfortunately, I didn’t like the rest of the pic thus I decided I would go back to my original file and process it through OnOne Softwares Perfect Layers.  Once I did this I felt I was on to something.  I then opened up Photoshop CS 5 and layered the two pics.  Next I extended the sun rays and added a sepia tone to give it a more warm feeling.

    I’m really starting to think that I’m going to dive into getting an M10 and go all out! I did meet a guy though in NYC w/ an M9 (red dot gave it away) and he said that he switches between his C5DM2 and the M9 depending the the type of shots he needs. He’s a “pro” photographer.ReplyCancel

    Really like this shot, Gage. The composition is very well balanced and processing is great. Haze and light create a nice mood.ReplyCancel
