WIRR 2021, January Week 3

Scroll down to content

Gripped by the doldrums of Covid winter, this wasn’t an exciting week. Over the weekend we did get out of the house to explore some natural areas north of the Poudre River. It was here that I found tree branches reflecting in the river, and this became my favorite image of the week.

Poudre River Reflections

Fujifilm X-T2, Fujinon XF 55-200 F/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS at 78 mm, f/7.1 at 1/80, ISO 200

Digital Darkroom. This image was about texture, not color, so I immediately converted to black and white. I increased contrast as much as I could- increasing contrast, highlights, whites and dehaze, while decreasing shadows and blacks. On a whim, I decided to add grain, softening everything. I finished by split toning the image and adding a vignette.

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.
