arely do I ever see fog in The French Quarter. One time during the Christmas season I did. I was shocked. I almost dropped my cameras. I almost fell in the river. The muddy Mississippi River. The river that is polluted from all the oil and other stuff dropped from the big ocean going freighters that pass through New Orleans. After all, this is a working river.
It didn’t take long to make this photograph. Flat light is very easy to work with, and this was the flattest. I added some contrast in post production and that was about it. Oh, and I made the red a little more powerful.
Sometimes, I add a border for no good reason other than I think that I might like it. This time I was afraid the picture might blend into the page. I see that I hadn’t needed to worry. I also see that there is good separation between the fog and the water at about the middle of the image. Sometimes WordPress compresses mid tones to the point that such fine detail is hidden.
This is a very unusual photograph for me but I really do like it. It’s another image rescued from the archives for the Picfair project. In case you are wondering see below. Right now pictures are really inexpensive. That’s likely to change for certain uses. Enjoy the work.http://raylaskowitz.picfair.com
By the way. I’m not so sure about this link. The block system doesn’t seem to want to let me connect in the usual way. You might have to hand type the link into your browser. Sorry about that.
