Lake Print

Lake Print

THE PHOTO:
From Yahoo! Travel:

Lenin Park, including the large lake in the center, was once Hanoi’s dumping ground for household waste. Originally called Seven-Hectare Lake, the area lacked any appeal until after the French were defeated. Ho Chi Minh adorned the grounds around the lake with gardens, paths, statues and even an area for theatrical performance. The newly named Reunification Park became, and still is, one of the most beautiful parks in Hanoi. It was later renamed Lenin Park when the then Soviet Union befriended Vietnam during the American War.

POST PROCESSING:
I went for a specific look and feel for this shot, as both monochrome (black and white), nor color did it any justice. I aimed for a tone that reminded me of Asian landscape prints – almost duo-tone in nature. This was done with various 55mm Filters in Photoshop, some cloning, sharpen, shadow/highlight, levels and curves.
