Floating in Blue

Floating in Blue

A thrill-seeker over Lake Taupo. Hardly one of my better shots, but bearing in mind this was shot over a 1000m away using the Bigma (on a tripod of course) it could have been worse. With no new material recently I will be struggling to put up anything of real interest or quality.

4th attempt on second photo. Crop, LAB sharpen (x2), LAB color boost, Auto Levels, Vignette, Noise Reduction with sharpening, Dodge and Burn on Parachute, Clone out halo on person, ND filter (top to bottom), Curves.
