We have had a wonderful few days of sun and while all love it I am not a fan of shooting in the sun. Today is dull and overcast with all that wonderful mood that I live for. I took the dog for a romp on Hirtles Beach and on the way back I shot a few in Kingsburg.

I guess I should have added a bit about the post in this image. I shot in raw and then I did a multiple “print” process. I “printed” the sky and the foreground differently. I combined both exposures. Next I then made a duplicate the resulting layer turning the blend to multiply, Then I used a mask to paint in and out a similar approach to dodging and burning in a dark room. As a final adjustment I add a bit of grain to the image. This created a bit of a harsh and grainy look which is reminiscent to photographs made int the 50’s and 60’s.

Grant, I really like the graininess for this photograph - it suits it very well. I particularly like the second house on the left and the curve of the road as it follows along...with those two other buildings that appear to have the same natural shingles.

That's an interesting cloud bank and gives this image a feel of another time.

Thank you for this and I look forward to seeing more photographs of Nova Scotia!

Great Photo!

i have always said that Nova Scotia is one of the places I would like to go to one day, it's a long way from Australia though!

Lovely image, interesting PP technique. I like that the scene is almost timeless (but I see a small portion of a car over the stairs on the left). I was in N.S. one summer many years ago, I hope to return again.
