April Squares: Top Shots, Hadrian’s Wall

ISO 800 f/13 1/1000sec 16mm

Date and Location of Photo: August 16, 2017. Hadrian’s Wall, several spots along the Wall are maintained by English Heritage

Thoughts on the Edit: Although now a square, the original file was captured with a wide-angle lens. The edit has the Luminar Look, Camden Desat, applied. I also experimented with the Orton effect filter, using it on two layers, the initial edits layer and the final edits layer. I’ve not ever tried that before and what I was specifically working on was the look of the sky.

April Squares, an Explanation:

When Becky announced that the April Squares theme was going to be “top”, I thought it over and then sent her a message, then pitched my idea. She was open to my theme within the theme and the result is my response to the April Squares challenge.

I move a lot and I have a move pending. I’ve lived here in England for about four years and will be heading to the United States. Exact dates to be determined, given the current world situation, details have yet to be worked out. My April Squares is a “top shots” reflection on the last four years. Each square represents some moment or place that was meaningful to me. They are in chronological order moving forward in time. I’m attempting to post every day. All photos will be edited in Luminar 3. I hope you enjoy following along, I’ve enjoyed the process of creating. Your comments and thoughts are welcome below.
