Vlog #8 is here!

 

In this episode I go back to the same location where I was in Vlog #4. But this time the scene is totally different. With the ice breaking and getting pushed toward the shoreline I saw an awesome foreground. With the use of bracketing and a polarizing-filter I managed to get a cool picture.

After the initial edit in Lightroom I blended three exposures in Photoshop with luminosity masks. I already liked the colors so I did not change much there, but I did some dodge and burning (my favorite process in post). Then I had to remove some of the foliage in the top left corner of the picture. Never got it quite where I would have liked it. You can see the before and after below. Final image can be viewed at 500px.
