Surfing Ice Man
Happy New Year 2009
All the best Wishes for You and your Family!
This one is also shot at the same ice sculpture festival as in this
and this image
. They really made some fantastic things.
TECH-INFO: made with my Minolta F100. The 35mm equivalent focal length is 38mm.
I took this image several years ago. I even printed it in big format, where you clearly see the shape of the pixels because it has only 4 mega pixels.
Two weeks ago I decided to improve and clean up the image in Photoshop. In the background there was a bunch of very visible and even disturbing garbage laying around, and a big blue plastic foil hanging behind the ball with pins in the right top corner. Using the burn tool I darkened them a lot. You can still see some details behind the surfer. In the original picture there were only a few background stars hanging in the top left corner. I cloned them to fully decorate the dark background. Finally I slightly enhanced the contrast a bit using curves.
