Last week you voted for the spookiest photo of the spooky season, and as promised I will go over the winning photograph, the context, editing, general information, etc.
#1 A spooky encounter
As of today, 36.36% voted for this photo as the spookiest!
I was walking through the Arb for the first time, trying to get fall-themed photos. It was probably around mid-October and I just walked into what I believed is called the Praire part of the Arboretum. That’s when I saw this guy right here!
Camera: Nikon D750, lens 18-200mm
- Exposure time: 1/100s
- ISO 800,
I decided to go quite simple with editing, I really like the colors so I pretty much didn’t touch them except for some slight color saturation for green. For the “spooky” touch I added vignetting and higher contrast
- Exposure: +0.80
- Contrast: +40
- Highlights: -30
- Shadows: +9
- Post-crop vignetting: -18
- Temperature: 5,447
- Texture: +5
- Clarity: +5
- Green Saturation: +8
And here you can see the before & after:
