Mow Cop in Fog

It was foggy today so I decided to go out and try to get some interesting fog-bound images. Thinking I might be able to get above it and shoot a fog covered landscape I went up Mow Cop. But it was thicker there than lower down. So instead I started shooting elements of the landscape through the fog, trying to make the fog work for me like it would with stage lighting . It kinda worked and the concept inspired this small collection of magenta/blue split toned images. Some are almost entirely done in Lightroom and some I took to Photoshop to do work on levels before going back to lightroom for the final contrast, vignette and split toning. These images are in the Gritstone Trail collection because the castle is actually on the Gritstone Trail.

 

This shot was edited in Lightroom (beta 4) before being taken into Photoshop for further editing.

 

More shots from the same walk are available in my Gritstone Trail Set.

 

And you can find out more about how I produce my images by watching my free weekly video podcast, PhotoWalkthrough, where I teach photo post processing.
