Photographer's Note

It has been a very long time since I have uploaded anything. Main reasons for this is because I do not own a decent camera and haven't done for a long while.

However, while in Ontario, Canada last week I took this shot with my brother's girlfriend's Nikon DSLR.

This has been edited in PS5 with HDR Toning custom preset, adjusted levels and colour balance.

As I haven't uploaded anything in a long time I haven't been using Photoshop so much, but this is an attempt I've made to get back into the game as I will have my own camera soon.

I like the composition of this shot and the way the water stands out nice and clear. The colours of the trees really gives it that 'fall' feeling with the variation in colours and the change from one season to the next.

I am quite critical of my own work as I strive to make it look great. I do think the sky is maybe too purple and maybe exposed a little too much as well.

I did fiddle around with choosing a black or white border, but white seemed best suited to the occasion as Winter is coming, not to mention the black border didn't make the image stand out as much.

Please comment with any advise on composition, photoshop adjusts and such as I love to hear good advise from people who have done this for a long time and know what they are doing.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the first shot of what will be many more to come. :)
