Parisal boats prepare to board tourists. These boats go close to the waterfalls and their round nature makes the occupant feel as if the boat will capsize easily. The oarsmen ride over small rapids to give the tourist a brief scary rush.
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! 🙂
