I have really been meaning to post a newer picture using one of a couple of new apps that I have downloaded lately. That just has not happened. Luckily I have some older pictures to fall back on even if they are not with my iPhone. Next week I promise to have something good for this section.
This picture was taken in 2010 with my Blackberry Storm on the day of my brothers wedding. Someone had put some banners for the wedding up on the fire danger sign for the wedding. If they only knew our family perhaps they would have increased the fire risk that day. It was a beautiful day though, and the fire incidents were kept to the fire pit.
I did try something a little different here. I used one of Trey Ratcliff’s presets in Lightroom for this shot. Straight out of the phone the shot looked alright, but something was missing. I liked this preset called “A Surprising Touch’ because it was just that. After applying the preset I adjusted the highlights and exposure a bit, and then I was done. The most time that I spent here was finding the right preset. I tried a few black and whites that looked good, but in the end I liked this shot the best.
