Photography and commentary from John Fujimagari

Sunset Barn

Sunset Barn

Well, we have no shortage of prairie winter scenes in this area, it’s just a matter of bundling up and getting out to shoot! This image is a bit of a twofer, I managed to get a little strip of the front range of the Rocky Mountains in at the horizon. This started as a 4 frame HDR image. I dropped the +2 of the 5 frame bracket because there was no detail left in the image. After HDR Efex Pro 2, it went into Color Efex Pro 4  and Viveza 2 for further massaging. The point of all of the post processing was to create an image that resembled what I saw in my mind’s eye when I shot the original images. This is what Ansel Adams used to call “previsualization”. I wanted to keep some light on the side of the building to show some detail, leaving the front to go darker.

In the best light…
