April Squares: Top Shots, Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery

ISO 25 f/2.2 1/651 sec 4.2mm

Day 16, find other responses here.

Date and Location of Photo: May 28, 2018. Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery. I have published several photos from my time along the Normandy Coast. This one is a detail shot from the Dieppe Canadian War Cemetery, which is a bit off the beaten path on a small, quiet road that has several fields nearby. A spot worth seeking out. The Cemetery is well cared for, beautiful and sad.

Thoughts on the Edit: I wasn’t sure if the square format was going to work with this particular file, so that was a bit of an experiment. Once I decided on the crop, I then boosted the details and luminance before adding the Luminar Look, Expired L11, which is an expired film look. The look has a texture overlay which is a bit too strong in my opinion so I edited that part of the look.

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.
