Prince's Inlet boat shack at sunset

 

View On Black

 

Prince's Inlet, Nova Scotia (near Mahone Bay)

 

You might recognize this old shack from two earlier photos in my stream. I took this the same day as the other ones but was a little later as I was leaving. The sky was really cool but I totally underexposed the building (it was a black silhouette) so I left the image in my huge reject folder.

 

After reading Terry's blog (halfwit_ns) I thought I would try to rescue this image. Well after a few layers & a bit of masking I managed to make a purse out of a sow ear :-) It certainly isn't perfect as I am still learning and I realize I should have used a tripod & bracketed my shots for this contrasty subject. This photography thing is a great learning experience though. I love it!!

 

Thanks so much for the great info Terry!! Time for me to go through that folder a bit more. Expect a flood soon! ;-)
