This picture is one of those which is made in post processing.
We were walking round the boating lake in Alexandra Palace in North London and I had a Tamron 10 – 24mm Super zoom fitted to my Pentax K-5. Emma was running off in the distance and I got to a low position and took the picture shown to the left; portrait orientation with the rails leading the eye into the picture. As always I took the picture in RAW so I could processit later in Lightroom.
Later when I got home I produced the cropped version shown above, with the clarity slider on Lightroom lower but the vibrance and saturation pushed up to give the slightly dreamy effect. I think it works really well, but I can’t deside if the cropped version is better than the original. Opinions ?
This image, along with the best of the rest I took that day are in a set on my Flickr photostream
