Coastal Ridge, Fog, Monochrome

Big Sur, CA

Scanning the archives for today’s post brings us to Big Sur from this past summer.  Some serious processing using Silver EFex Pro 2 almost transforms the fog into an inverse x-ray effect.

I would like to think the fog from over the ridge is the cause for the light spots above the ridge.  That may just be wishful thinking.  The problem is that I was a tad bit heavy-handed on the contrast causing a halo effect above the ridges that could not be easily brought back in Lightroom.  Another reason to save your processing settings when using an external plug-in like SEP2.  By not doing so, I would have to re-process this photo from scratch, and frankly, it was far too late into the evening when I started on this photo.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, patterned metering mode, 55mm, ISO 100, 1/60 sec, f/11
