Tonight, I’ve been going through my Lightroom catalog – attempting to do a better job of categorizing the almost 30,000 images I’ve got in my master catalog. Along the way, I’ve been marking a few photos that I thought might be worthy of some additional processing – including the one above.
This is a shot taken by my daughter on a school trip in 2005 to Washington, DC – at the Korean War Veterans Memorial. As I stumbled across it, I found the composition so compelling – shot in the middle of a late February snow fall – that I had to try to process it just a bit.
To finish it, I used Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2 to adjust it and add just a bit of blue toning that seemed appropriate to the mood of the photo. Click on the image to see a larger version – with the snow flying!
I hope she likes it!
