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! 🙂

Lake Superior

A shot from my recent trip to the scenic Apostle islands, WI. Lake Superior is the largest fresh water lake in the world and here you can see it in the background. In fact its so huge, you might as well call it an ocean and a new visitor wont even know the difference. I am sure even this small shrub is not aware of the ‘vastness’ behind it.

Some more from this place in my future posts.
