In The Still Of The Night

When time and light are commodities that are far from plentiful, it's your responsibility to be decisive. My ideal situation here would be to find a small area that has several possibilities in terms of creating different images. It's ok to maneuver around a manageable radius but you always have to keep in mind that there is no penalty clock - you aren't getting time put back on the board and I'd much rather spend those few precious minutes working a scene as best as I can rather than running from one point to another and then having to spend even more time recomposing, refocusing, etc. With this scene, I walked away with at least three keepers that are share-worthy. Because there were so many interesting elements within 2-3 feet of each other, all I needed to do was pivot and reposition a bit to get a whole new result. Google Maps Location Info 43.103889, -124.435556 In terms processing I applied a tiny amount of Magic Sunset and a Blue filter using onOne Software Perfect Effects 4. I also brought focus to the foreground by applying a slight blur using FocalPoint 2.1. Final touches were applied using Lightroom 4.3.
