I had gone more than 10 days without taking any pictures.Â This morning had a fine fog to it that I thought would look nice over Springfield Lake; the reservoir at the Churchville Nature Center.Â I struck out and this is the majestic view of the lake I got:
Some may find a certain romance to it, but I don’t.Â Much more fruitful were the garden shots.
A few of the shots take advantage of the modification to functional depth of field caused by the fog.Â This is one of them.
This is another, as if Silent Hill took place in an arboretum.
This was done by zooming between 70 and 200mm focal length during a 2 second exposure.Â The thick depth of field makes it appear less blurry than would have happened otherwise.
I made almost no adjustment to color here.Â The azaleas were that saturated.
I thought this a good candidate for tonemapping.Â It took me about six tries to make it look neither flat nor drugged out.Â I was sure to save that setup this time.
