WIRR 2017, May Week 5

This is another photo from our trip to Oklahoma.  On our last day there, I got up in the early morning to take a last look around.  The ground was soaked with dew, and the air held still more moisture.  It wasn’t hot, but the morning promised it soon would be.  Continuing to explore the same theme as last week’s image, I intentionally shot it with the same principles – a focus on the golden light, and a feeling of summer haze and humidity.  “They” say you shouldn’t overexpose your images, but I again did so intentionally.  This was my favorite image of the week.

 

Hazy Morning

 

Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 R LM OIS at  41mm, f/9 at 1/400; ISO 400.

 

Digital Darkroom.  The biggest change to this image was giving the highlights a golden split tone.  I then pounded on the light, boosting exposure, highlights, clarity, contrast, and vibrance.  

 

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh.  This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
