Writing with Light

Sunday Afternoon on Lake Rosseau

I was in a canoe when I took this picture. Same day, same place to very different purposes. I, trying to find the perfect composition while trying to keep the canoe from bobbing up and down in the water and he finding the perfect spot to read while shutting out the rest of the world, including me.

I created a digital painting using LR, Photoshop and Topaz Impression. In case you weren’t aware Topaz Labs is running a promotion on Topaz DeNoise (it’s the noise removal software I use and love it) until June 30th. Topaz DeNoise is priced at $59.99 for the month of June, that’s a $20 savings. The coupon code is: JUNEDENOISE and you can click here to learn more.

    Do you think he even noticed you?
    It is such a challenge to shoot while in a rocking boat. Glad you took the shot and added the story, too

    • I don’t think he noticed me at all. It was very hard to shot from the canoe. It’s the first time I had done it not all of them were successful.

  6. I enjoyed the composition with the person leaving rather than entering the scene.

  8. Challenging conditions! I like your post processing which has worked well to enhance the tranquility of the scene/mood.

  9. Really like this one. It looks like the photographic version of a painting by Peter Doig.
