Silhouette Do Over

9 09 2015

I wasn’t happy with my photos for the Silhouette week, so decided to redo that lesson. We were done in Pinehurst, NC for the weekend. Ours friends have a condo on the lake. Perfect time to get some silhouette photos.  The storms were moving in and the sky started to get dark. I took some photos of the tops of the pine trees. I used Lightroom to make the image darker and used PSE to darken the tree line across the lake.

We spent the weekend in Pinehurst, NC at our friend's condo on Lake Pinehurst. The storms were moving in and the sky started to get dark. I took some photos of the tops of the pine trees. I used Lightroom to make the image darker and used PSE to darken the tree line across the lake. I wasn't happy with my first attempts at the Silhousetts challenge. You can see more images and a movie of the wind in the trees from the lake on my blog: https://needlepointernc.wordpress.com/

Woke up at 2:30 AM and saw the moon peaking out behind the pines. We were staying at a friends condo on the lake in Pinehurst, NC. Pinehurst is aptly named and is also home to many gold course. I did not have my tripod with me so I put the camera on the railing, which limited the scene. I used Lightroom to darken and make the grain look gritty. This is a redo for the silhouette week.

First Friday in Southern Pines. Drive 2 hours south to not have to wait 2 hours in line for a lobster roll.
