Most times when I am out and about, the time of day isn’t conducive for good light for photography. Regardless, that doesn’t stop me from capturing images that I want to remember.
During yesterday’s Birding Blitz I came across this barn. The sky was hazy and the sun was hot for mid-afternoon. Even though I knew the image wouldn’t turn out as it should, I took it anyway. The colors dull and flat, the sky darkened the scene.
Getting home, I was counting on Nik’s magic to salvage and perhaps transform this image. With a little cropping and exposure adjustments in Lightroom, I first tried Nik HDR Pro with the Landscape 1 preset.
It’s starting to become interesting. But still not quite satisfied I decided to try Nik Color Efex Pro to see what I can come up with. Using the Detail Extractor preset, grad ND filter, and a light vignette here is the result.
So which one do you like? To share some more pics from yesterday, and yes – Today..here we go!
