This was my second attempt at shooting the edge of the ice and the water backlit.
Well, it was the second one that I thought might be worthy of posting. There were many that didn’t make the cut as usual. There was a lot of dynamic range in the scene and it was difficult to capture.
In an earlier frame, I caught the highlights on the ripples in the lake. The exposure showed things a tad dark, and that made it difficult to see the fine details. I also thought that I’d like to see more of the ice edge in the image. This one I converted to monochrome in Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 and used a copper toning to finish the image.
In the best light…
