Sunrise Fishing

Uploaded: August 04, 2008


My favorite vacation spot - Lost Lake in Northern Wisconsin. Early morning light. (I was so excited to utilize the dramatic back lighting of these fishermen.)The mist rising from the lake was an added bonus. Foreground wheel is part of a boat that is docked. The sun flare on the wheel was enhanced in PS. (Slight light rendering applied over a natural sun flare) Other PS edits include color sat, very slight crop, contrast, gaussian blur and sharpening.

Exif: F Number: 4.5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/1600 seconds, Flash: reserved, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 16.00 mm, Model: Canon PowerShot S3 IS
