A Better Rendition

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 18 January 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Here is a better rendition of the first photograph in this series. Note: when I went on the walk that resulted in all of the texture blended photographs, I wanted the fog to be just like it was 3 weeks earlier when I didn't have a camera. After the initial disappointment, I said to myself, "Jack, get over it. Don't miss out on the gifts of the day." If it had been like it was 3 weeks earlier, I would not have captured any of the photographs that you have seen.
*************************************************
THANK YOU for your kind words about the Spotlight. Actually it is one of my all time favorites of my photographs.

These are such pleasing images. So rich in atmosphere that is enhanced by your processing immeasurably.
