Quiet Afternoon

Quiet Afternoon

Recently, I came upon this December 2012 image of a quiet afternoon near Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

Let's take a quick trip to the Yankee Point Marina in Lancaster Virginia where there is an empty slip. Perhaps the boat is out at sea. It was an early morning this past Summer (2012), as the sun began it's ascent on what turned out to be another in a string of 100 degree (F) days. No matter the temperatures, it's hard to beat a day on or near the water. :-)

Oars and Canoes

While recently going through some images to process, this one kind of jumped out at me. Maybe it's coming upon that time of year, it is the first day of Spring after-all. I was unsure as to how I wanted to process this so I gave it a few looks. A typical style of processing.

Next it was time to get out the digital brush and do a painterly look. Afterward I desaturated the image for a softer look.

And lastly, a B&W conversion of the image above.

By the way, there is a story behind the image above that I will share in a future post. In the meantime...
