Last Light At The Lake 70mm, f/2.8, 1/750s, ISO 200

A few weeks ago our family and some friends camped at the Vineyard Campground in Grapevine, TX (while attending the Alliance Air Show).  Snapped this shot of the girls watching the sunset from the dock behind our campsite.

Did some basic adjustments in Lightroom (mainly crop, contrast, clarity and some desaturation) then pulled it into Photoshop and combined it with a couple of subtle textures from Jerry Jones at Shadowhouse Creations.

  1. Dear Michael……….Thought you handled the lighting in this shot SO well! You allowed the watery reflections to BE and used the waning light to your advantage as well! GREAT!!

    • Thanks! It’s always tempting to try to capture the whole dynamic range to “fix” things like the blown-out reflections in the water but in this case I agree — best left alone 🙂
