Ed and I headed out to a local State Park for a photo walk (and 2 Guys Photo website talk) and happened upon this stream. It’s October in New England and there is supposed to be an explosion of yellows, oranges, reds all around us. Well, for reasons that scientists can explain, it’s been a bust here in terms of Fall colors. Nevertheless, we set out to grab any and all colors we could find.
Two tools helped salvage this scene. The first was the use of slow shutter speed to give a sense of movement and flow to the water and the second was a run through Topaz Adjust to pop the colors (as much as possible… because there wasn’t much there.). Taken with a Sony SLT-A55V and its lowly 18-55 kit zoom lens. ISO 100, f22, .5 second exposure.
The question is: did I leave this one in the oven a little bit too long?
