When the Earth Stopped
When the Earth Stopped
Because of bad fog I didn't get to the location till after sunrise... standing in two foot of mud I tried to salvage the situation... I ended up using 15 stops of filter... a B&W 10 stop, a Lee Grad 3 and had to use a 2 stop Tobbaco Grad...It's a single exposure ...the image was too hot so I reduced the temperature in Lightroom which gave this tint... no other fancy software... (re-subbed due to bad softness)

Just re subbed this due to "softness"...
No worries Michelle..my pleasure. I'm now shooting into the sun and moon and really struggling with that
