Pretty in Pink

While in MacKenzie, we had a great visit with my brother Joshua, his wife Esther, and their newborn baby girl Justice. Joshua's friend Keith was kind enough to take Bethany and I out for an evening of fishing in his small aluminum boat. It was a beautiful calm evening, but the fish weren't biting. It did give me some time to snap a few pictures.

Taking photos from a boat in low light provides some challenges. Obviously I couldn't use slow shutter speeds, so my only option was to underexpose. This can work great when your scene is backlit. As you know, I love reflections, so the chance to capture the reflection of this silhouette of the forest (created by an exaggerated underexposure) was warmly welcomed.

Okay, I've abstained from Photoshop for quite some time now, but the potential for this photo was too much to pass up. In actual fact I didn't do too much to it, I basically removed the yellow.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 21mm, f/7.1, 1/100 sec, ISO 100

I like the pink, I think it was a good processing decision. Awesome reflections, too.

I normally hate pink, but it is so lovely in this photo. I think it was a good decision to use photoshop to remove yellow.
