I actually kind of like this foggy park shot, it looks just like it did when I was there. I haven't touched this shot, but I couldn't help but play with it in picnik
The shot below I added some depth to the trees by contrasting them and increasing the temp until I got this color. The I added the crystallizing effect and moved it around until I got the effect I wanted. It almost looks like the sun is breaking through the fog and trees. After I got the shot the way I wanted I used a museum matte frame to finish it off. And I am pretty happy with the results.
This is my dad. I took this shot on a grey, drizzly July afternoon in Montreal. I had taken him to a couple of cemeteries so he could show me where various members of our family were buried. True to form, I toted my camera along and tried to remember the experience through my lens. Barely two months after this was taken, we lost him, leaving me with a stack of disconnected pixels on a hard drive and more questions than answers. I often look at my pictures from this day and wonder whether or not he knew, or sensed, that his life was drawing to a close. They somewhat haunt me, but I still feel compelled to take the occasional look. Today would have been his and my mom's 56th wedding anniversary. Days like this make me wonder what might have been if the universe zigged and did not zag, and remind me why we should be thankful for having had whatever time we were given. #Montreal #Arthur #Levy #zl #family #everything
