Endless Fields of the Eastern Shore (Prince Edward Island)Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processedhttp://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/endless-fields-of-the-eastern-shore-prince-edward-island/
Ater visiting Prince Edward Island on many occasions in the last 10 years It was the first time I got to drive along the Eastern Shote of the island.
It looked different and unique compared to other parts of PEI. It has a high shore with view on Nova Scotia across the Northumberland Strait and the endless farm fields.
It was a pure driving photo trip experience. I was driving without any specific places to visit just trying to spot something interesting and beautiful. When I spotted this view I just stopped the car and took a couple of shots from the side of the road.
SHOOTING & PROCESSING
I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod (-1, 0, +1) as I usually do.
I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in Lightroom Rapid Editing System for Landscapes.
But this time I introduced the editing twist to Rapid Editing.
First I applied Lightroom preset Drought from my Landscape Collection with the following Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Drought (1, 8, 30 ).
Next, I created a Virtual Copy of the image and applied another preset, this time Point Lobos with the following Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Point Lobos (9, 20, 30).
Finally, I loaded both versions to Photoshop as individual layers and blended them together using the Transparency Masks and the Brush Tool.
