This shot, taken with my Canon G-11 on a walk around Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, presented some interesting possibilities and challenges. Using OnOne's Software Plug-In Perfect Effects through Adobe Lightroom, I added a blue filter as well as tonal enhancements. I also added a subtle blue sky and clouds reflection to create more depth and make the flat water more interesting.
This image is also an example of a concept I teach in my workshops: "build foreground." The foreground subject on the surf board/boogie board is an important element in leading you up to and through the rest of the image.
