The ground was bone dry, and the Bison ( or Buffalo… if you wish !) were rather skitterish, kicking up a whole lot of dust, so I took advantage of the moment to produce a more interesting image.
The colour shot looked too plain, so in Adobe Photoshop CS3 I converted to b/w, (Channels) applied a little Orton, dodged and burned here and there, and my final touch was to add some ‘noise’ to enhance the dust, which also looks like mist !
Shot on a Canon EOS 40D, f9.5, 1/350 sec, ( I needed a fast shutter speed and a fairly shallow depth of field ) iso 200, 28-300mm Tamron lens set at 109mm, hand held, RAW file converted in Adobe Camera Raw / CS3 see notes above.
VIEWS SO FAR 946 AND 28 FAVES….23rd March 2011.
