Project 52 – Entry #8
Finally…it was a beautiful weekend in Toronto but alas it was also a very busy one. I hope all you Dads, Uncles and Grandfathers had a spectacular Father’s day.
I was able to steal away for about an hour on Saturday afternoon and walk around old Richmond Hill. I found a small park tucked away on a side street behind an old heritage building. The park was empty and it allowed me to not only take some pictures but relax on a park bench and enjoy the sunshine for a few minutes. What was really nice was this pretty gazebo located at the far end of the park.
While sitting inside the gazebo I was enjoying the shadows that the benches and the gazebo itself was creating. I composed my shot to get the bench and shadows but during post processing I felt like there should be more at play here. I used Topaz Lens Effects to create the zoom effect and then a layer mask in Photoshop to reveal parts of the bench.
