Lone Sail at Sunset

Lone Sail at Sunset


I’m having a difficult time remembering all that was done with this image because I’ve been playing at backing up all my images to an external hard drive.  In doing so the history normally stored in Lightroom has disappeared. From what I recall most of the changes were in the lighting along with decreasing exposure, increasing whites and enhancing the blues.  I definitely did some sharpening and a vignette.

Here is the before picture that I wasn’t sure if I would ever use as it was too muted for my taste.  This made it an easy choice for my addition to Stacy’s AfterBefore Friday Week 27 Forum.  This is a great group to take a look at for ideas and creativity on how you might enhance your images.  I know that I for one have learned a bundle of new ideas.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    What an improvement, you did an amazing job. The after image is so strikingly beautiful and inviting, I can almost feel the coolness of the sea.

    Hi, Karen: Great job on your image. The intense blues really make for a striking scene. Like Stacy said, it makes me want to be on that boat.

    Ha! I too am backing up my photos – or, let’s say, trying to get organized with all my photos. Don’t know why that’s wiping out your LR history though. Make sure you’re moving files using the LR file system, not your computer’s file system.

    Still love the photo – and I still want to be on that sailboat 🙂

      Thanks Neha. I love taking sunset pictures and being on the water. We had anchored for the night when this picture was taken of the sailboat crossing the horizon.
