05.21.2019 The before and after

The title might give the impression of a raw image followed by a processed one but in this case it is Sunday’s preceding and following compositions to my back and side.

The setting Full Flower Moon just before sunrise.

As with Sunday’s post, the hazy sky was a challenge.  Although visible to the naked eye, the image coming out of Lightroom didn’t show the same detail I was seeing because of the bright light surrounding the moon. Photoshop is a wondrous tool. I did not add what bit of “man in the moon” we can see, but was able to retrieve it with targeted burning. Not a wall hanger but I was glad to make an image.

After shooting the sunrise, I remembered to look around and there, to my right, was once again a chance to get a shot of Mount Norwottuck.

As much as I liked the sunrise I posted two days ago, this was my favorite for the morning.

  1. I take it the second picture, and perhaps also the first, is an HDR composite.

    Now, this would be a sunrise worth getting up for. Of course, the getting up has to come first. What comes after is the luck of the draw, and you certainly drew a good one on this morning.
