April Squares: Top Shots: Mummelsee Lake

ISO 320 f/11 1/250sec 37mm

Day 25, find other responses here.

Date and Location of Photo: August 13, 2019. Mummelsee Lake in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Thoughts on the Edit: My initial edits of this included removing some signage and people from the far side of the lake. The erase function in Luminar did this quite nicely. I’ve added the Luminar Look, Subway, and also the Golden Hour filter set to 18%.

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.

  1. My eyes got wide open when I saw this. I think your edits are just as they are supposed to be. For myself, I always say the “edits are in the eyes of the photographer”. And for myself on this photo… perfect. The mood is set.
