Grassy Voyage

Grassy Voyage

Uploaded: July 08, 2007


Canon Powershot S3 - PS applied
An old row boat, rarely used...seemed to set out on it's own voyage in a wind-blown grassy embankment along a lake in northern Wisconsin.
The wind was blowing very hard, which helped create the "water-like" effect in the grasses. Photo edits include sharpening, curves, magic wand and lasso for highlights, color adjustments, and clone tool.

Exif: F Number: 3.5, Exposure Bias Value: +0, Exposure Time: 1/60, Flash: flash did not fire, White Balance: manual white balance, Focal Length: 6mm, Camera Model: Canon PowerShot S3 IS
