Lake of the clouds - Upper Peninsula Michigan

***Full Disclosure: This is a composite image***

The photographers in Michigan are very supportive of each other (as we all are everywhere in my experience) and in our local group chat; a friend had asked some of us to edit one of his raw files and explain how we did it so they could practice their post processing skills.

I wanted to demonstrate several techniques so I pushed this beyond my normal “acceptable” level of editing and created a composite image. Took the image from day to night, removed the blown out sky and replaced it with an Aurora shot, dodged and burned, added highlights to simulate moonlight from the left. Figured I’d share here in case anyone liked this type of digital art.
