I'm lucky to have a small lake within driving distance of home. In winter the sun rises over the best bits of the lake. This morning (13 January 2012) was cold & frosty and the water mirror calm.I made six images and as the best of the light slipped away from dawn into morning put my Lee 'Big Stopper' on the front and guessed an exposure - just for fun. This is the image...I processed the raw in Capture NX2 before importing and converting it to a DNG in Lightroom 4 Beta where a little tweaking took place. I converted to mono in Silver Efex Pro 2 using a low key preset, which I tweaked until I got the result I wanted. Finally, I added the film emulsion from Kodak's much-missed ISO32 Panatomic X (with grain!) to give the image a filmic look.I do hope you like it; please feel free to comment or anything else while you're here. Thanks for looking and, most of all... ENJOY! \0/BEST VIEWED IN FULL SIZE MODE
