The Stripèd Shore (South Lido Park, January 2016)
March 4, 2016
Updated around 4:00 PM EST following an exchange with Ken Bello (see comments). The first image below is the one that went up at 6 this morning. The one beneath that—which I like better—is the result of working with the Tone Curve and Brush tools in Lightroom, following what Ken said. The third image is a slightly beefed-up color version, which I’m surprised to find I also like better than the first image. I’m not going to choose between the second and third images, but if you, dear viewer, would like to, I’d love to know what you think.
March 5 Update
I added two more variations. See the comments for a running conversation related to these images.
