As you can see the lighting was pretty good yesterday morning during my trip to Sandy Hook. I think this location at Sandy Hook is called Horseshoe Cove and these rather large chunks of ice(snow) were scattered all over the place. Many of them could have been 4-5 feet thick. It reminded me of some of those nature shows on tv, maybe just on a smaller scale.
Processing was minimal due to the great side lighting. I darkened the darks and lightened the lights in the tone curve function in Lightroom, then I added a slight vignette. I finished with my Gallery Series matte but couldn’t apply a drop shadow(in white) with the black matte. I can do do this easily with a white matte. If anyone(Karen B?) knows the secret please let us know.
