Insomnia by Solkku Insomnia by Solkku
Hello everybody! Here's a shot I took back in January of 2006 in Pellinge (an islet outside Porvoo in Finland), when there still was no ice and snow. I kinda liked the moodyness in this one, so I decided to submit it. Processed RAW in PS, burned & dodged a bit, and added soft vignetting and the frame.

Print available.

Info: Canon EOS 20D | Sigma 12-24mm EX HSM | ISO100 | f/22 | 6 secs

Hope you like it. Comments and critiques are welcomed.

Paavo

Is the green stone a manipulation?
Reply

Solkku Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2007
Nope, I don't consider adding saturation manipulation as it can be done in a darkroom to an analog photo also. ;) That is what RAW photography is all about.

are those all natural colors in the stone, or did you recolor them in the computer? if it's natural, it must be a wonderful place to visit.

this is beautiful. ^_^

The color blending is amazing. The grading of the background vs the fore is mesmerizing, as well. Stunning and entrancing.
