The Craft Rest…

With today’s WordPress Daily Post prompt of Craft, my first thought was certainly one of talking about the craft of photography, but as I looked for an image to go with that I came across different craft!

As a matter of fact, this image works well with both aspects of the word, as my photo of these craft on the beach during low tide on the Bay of Fundy had originally failed to impress me enough to make it part of my regular rotation of images that I didn’t mind displaying.  When I captured it, the weather was kind of overcast with a low cloud cover and lots of gray tones.  I decided to take the shot anyway, as the contrast between the height of the pier and the boats on the beach was so striking.

It wasn’t until several years later that I decided to try some different processing of this image.  Using HDRsoft’s Photomatix Pro, I tried some different processing to get the sky to speak a bit more… and I like the end result.  Of course, I also realized that I should have shot this as a 3 or 5-shot HDR series ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you ever have a photo that you breathed new life in with a bit of processing?
