Default The Time Tunnel

Thanks for taking a look !

Here are the basic stages on how the photo was made.

In-camera settings:

This was a camera mistake on my part. The camera rolled off a small log
on to the forest floor right after the self timer count (the camera is fine, D80 are tough lol)
and this is what the camera captured.

-Nikon D80/Nikkor 18-200mmVR
-1/10 second @ f/22
-18mm
-ISO 100
-Ev -1 1/3
-Vr off
-self timer 5 sec

Software editing: (Nikon Capture NX2)

-straightened the photo (as the camera captured the trees on a 45 degree
angle)

-converted the photo to black and white

-lightened (dodge) all the highlights in the photo that are natural occurring

-added tad of global contrast boost

-healed out any sensor dust

-added a blue Duotone tint by moving the WB whitebalance slider to
a very cold temp to add mood to the photo

-added a tad of global USM sharpening

-used the sliders in (levels) to set the final exposure

Take care,
Dwayne Oakes

Dwayne, people have been using the log roll technique for years.
It is a neat looking shot.
