Water and Ice...
I took this photo a few weeks ago while exploring along the Bruce trail. It was a mild winter day, and the textures in the ice and the water were stunning. I did a couple of very minor adjustments to the levels and contrast and then I added a subtle gradient mask to get a bit more of the sparkle back in the water without loosing the definition in the ice.
I added a layer of Kim Klassens "cool grunge' texture using a hard light blend mode at 15% and then finished off by creating a soft frame using an inverse selection and adding a colour adjustment at a low opacity with a soft light blend mode.
The final steps to the edit were to add the quote and my signature. The quote uses 'Journal' font.
As much as I like the beauty of the ice and snow, I look forward to images of Spring, hopefully in the very near future!
