Rise and Shine

Heres a shot from a trip i went last weekend. I did post a few shots highlighting the vastness of lake superior before. But what caught my attention in this shot is the sky. Dense clouds, sunrise, a tiny boat and a vast lake… makes one dramatic combination 🙂 Sometimes shots such as these remind me of how tiny we are when compared to elements of nature.

I am often confronted with the question of drawing a line between the amount of post-processing and showcasing an image as I saw it on location. For this one, I hardly did anything, except for a slight bump in brightness and contrast. Just to give you an idea of how much more dramatic the image can be, take a look at this edited version:HERE. I am sure some of you ask the same question to yourself before sharing, where do you draw a line? Do you like processing the shots or do you prefer to share images as shot, straight out of the camera? I would love to hear your opinions in the comments below! 🙂

  1. Gorgeous photo. You are right, it doesn’t need dramatic enhancement. I always feel guilty when I alter a photo, unless I do it to make it look more like what I remember!

    1. @Ravi… thanks! Yup, PP is a pain like u said… but sometimes I feel I was not able to capture what I saw accurately…thats when i start messing around with the pic and end up over processing it at times 🙂 The results vary from great to downright awful, but yes…. its better to get it right the first time on location!
