Week 2, pic 1
BACKGROUND: This image was taken near (as in I’m to the left of) the Jackson Lake Dam, Obviously by the smooth lake surface it was a windless sunny day and I’m at the top of the dam, the dam lets out behind me, but at this time of the year isn’t as severe as it would be in the winter. The mountains are part of the Grand Teton Range of the Rockies in Wyoming and this is called Mt. Moran with the main Grand Teton peak off the edge of the picture and on the other side of the trees. I lived out here off and on for five years and took many pictures on my Kodak Point and Shoot.
ORIGINAL : Bottom image…. according to pc image properties, taken Dec 21, 2005, with Kodak z740 (point and shoot), f/4 stop, 1/1000exposure, ISO-80, 6mm focal length
EDITED VERSION: Top Image… Edited with pxlr express, (experimenting with the wider capabilities offered in express for editing than an older version I use to use of there’s)… I increased vibrancy, saturated, than used an airbrush to smooth out the old digital noise (the programs “denoise” isn’t as good as my more professional “denoise” programs, but I have used airbrush or “smoother” before on my images and found it did what I wanted it to here).
For an old image I’m decently happy with the original, but and the only thing I’d try to do differently on my editing is make the molehills as the base of the mountain less vibrant and that would require a layer to edit them separately.
