Afternoon Walk

It was hot with lots of bright sun and I was taking my third walk of the day yesterday.  I had no intention of making any pictures but I had my pocket TG-4 in my hip pocket so along the way I made these pictures.

When I got home, I was going to trash them but I first wanted to see how they responded to my latest preset.  They surprised me.  I have a fondness for dark images and I didn’t think these would work for that style, but they certainly did.  I guess I need to carry that camera in a pocket and use it more often.

For those who are interested, I started with out-of-camera color jpegs.  I then used LR to reduce the color saturation to zero, apply a low level of split toning, tweaked the tone curve slightly, and reduced the exposure and the black point.
