Lightroom’s “Select Subject” option provides a quick way to create a mask that you can use to emphasize the subject by reducing the exposure of the background area. This image had a lot of visual distraction from the other blooms in the background. Reducing the background exposure resulted in an image where the subject was clearly identified.
Taken from Marrowstone Island, southeast of Port Townsend. The fog bank is hiding Whidbey Island. The water is the Admiralty Inlet area of Puget Sound. Mt Baker is catching the light of the sunset.
I was walking the beach on Marrowstone Island (SE of Port Townsend) and noticed the strange-ish clouds overhead with Mt Baker in the distance. Not particulary weird clouds. Just a little funny looking. Fargo clouds. (Movie reference)
I took a ferry ride the other day and while it was clear and sunny when we left the ferry dock, we soon moved into a fog bank. So much for capturing any whale photos! But during the transition to fog, there were some interesting photos of the shoreline as the fog burned off.
Sort of a “Where’s Waldo?” puzzle for you. Find the eagle in the tree and Mt Baker on the horizon. (those are clues)
