Challenge: Your Occupation II (Advanced Editing V)
Collection: Challenges
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM
Location: Harwich Port, MA, USA
Date: Dec 23, 2006
Aperture: f/11
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/40
Date Uploaded: Dec 23, 2006

RAW processing in Adobe Lightroom to 16-bit TIFF, exported to Photomatix Pro and lightly tone mapped, exported to PS7

hue/sat adjustment layer, desat all channels 20%. Gradients all 4 edges in in multiply layer, faded to 20%. High Pass sharpening, resize, border, save for web.

*******

Gawd, this workflow is getting FAST :-) I am in love with the Lightroom beta... The tone mapping really didn't add much here; could have done same thing in PS7 with curves easily, but tone mapping is natural to me now.

I have a sweet B/W version of this also, was hard to choose between them.

Ah, the 10-22 and some very lovely light indeed. I can't quite vote in challenges at the moment (I'm on dial-up, believe it or not) but I did recognize this as yours from the thumbnail. I'll have to check to see if you posted the B&W.

i like this photo alot, gave me a feeling of something wonderful to come. one note, the electric and the street light poles on the right side distracted from the rustic rustic quality.

You may have been too close on this one. The image appears to be very distorted, which gives it a very unnatural appearance.

L()L this is great. It seems we all have been there at a time or two waiting for the light to become pefect for the single one shot we have to capture. This is very nice.

When the light comes you'll need a camera though.
