Nostalgic Melancholy

Large on black canvas | My favorite shots


Location: Sustrum Moor - Emsland - Germany

Exposure: 1s at f/8, bracketing for a 3-stop range securely mounted on a tripod


Technique: Slight usage of HDR tone mapping with PS treatment afterwards.


The choice of color theme was made by tweaking a Channel Mixer adjustment layer until the desired effect was achieved. A 1200 ASA film noise emulation was sampled from a blueprint and added to a new layer to complete the nostalgic character of the scenery.


Final effects were achieved by tweaking contrast and levels slightly by creating a custom curve adjustment layer. Local sharpness was done on a copy of the original layer by a combination of the High Pass filter and Unsharp Mask to get some oldish looking - slightly exaggerated - sharpening effects in the foreground areas. Hope yall like it.
