Quiet Storm by KrisVlad Quiet Storm by KrisVlad
I tried to capture a special moment of my honeymoon.

It was taken about 15 minutes before the sunrise, so it was still pretty dark outside. I forced the camera to do a longer exposure by setting the ISO to 100. The blur-motion is slightly enhanced, and I did add a gradient and dodged/burned selected areas to add contrast. I also added the vignette to emphasize the chairs as the focal point.

Nice! I do that too sometimes, but I only go back like a week or two before I lose interest haha. I'm glad you made it all the way to my day!


Do you think the admin that awarded it would be upset if I updated it with a newer version?

Very nice series. I like the contrast between loneliness/one chair and togetherness/two chairs.

That is cool.

If a couple was sitting there, it would almost suggest a potential fight between the two is approaching. Or could also be taken that they're comfortable with each others differences.

More like the latter... we relaxed on those chairs for a few hours after the sun went up. It was so peaceful.
