The Ghost of Morning

© 2016 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

In this 21 second exposure the slight movement of the fisherman has given him a ghostly quality. Not quite fully there. I love the composition of this image, and approached it a few different ways, combining exposures and experimenting with different looks. I finally settled on a single exposure and jacked up the warmth of the image and gave it this rich color palette in my favorite plug-in, Alien Skin’s Exposure X. I’m proud of the final version here, and hope you enjoy it. The ghost of morning, fishing for the catch that will never come…
