Smoke Season in the Rockies
Things have pretty much cleared up now, but in the middle of August, the smoke was thick and heavy in the mountains. The smoke is hanging over the town of Canmore. The iconic Three Sisters are barely visible over the town.
On this image, I bumped the contrast to enhance the layered look and converted to black and white. Then I used Nik Color Efex Pro 3 again to add the Pastel colors back in and then added some Film Grain for a gritty look.
I upped the contrast on this image to keep the trees beside the road dark. I thought this accentuated the repeating triangles that are prominent throughout this composition. The shades of the fading day give it an interesting color.
