3971 – Not So Solitary

I hope you’re not getting bored. Fact is, I didn’t, and least of all of doing post-processing. Actually it’s a pleasure processing images of such chunks of ice, in order to bring out details that you can’t see in reality. When you’re there, you just see white. You take the image, hoping to later discover interesting structures. And rather often you do.

3965 – The Crack in the Ice

In all these images I used my ultra-wide at its widest, and I went pretty close to the subject. Processing-wise the challenge is to bring out color variation and contrast.

In earlier times I would have used LAB color mode in Photoshop. It’s an ideal tool for removing casts and making images more vivid. Turns out I can’t do it any more. Photoshop has completely changed since I used to write tutorials, and the the things that have not changed are long forgotten 🙂
