A couple weeks ago I was driving home and I spotted this little pond about 2 miles from my house. I thought it was pretty cool how the ice had melted and it was half sunk. Plus, it also helped the it was almost sunset and the sky was pretty magnificent.

Note: As is going to be the case in all future posts, I’ve included the before image as well. Please use the slider to change from before to after and let me know if you run into any problems.

Chris @Jesse Pafundi & @Rob Hanson – Thanks, Jesse. I brought that out with the Brilliance/Warmth Filter from Nik.
@Jim Denham – Thanks, Jim. For more information, you can check out another post, here, if you have wordpress or here if you want to manually integrate it in your blog.

Rob Hanson +1 on the golden color. I also love the before/after slider! Wish I could do that on my blog.

James Brandon Love this shot Chris. The ice is great, and the sky is even better. Can’t say I’m in love with the powerlines tho, don’t you hate when they run right through your shot!?

Chris @James Brandon – Thanks, man. I really like this shot too… and like yourself, I didn’t much like those power lines. I thought about trying to remove them, but didn’t really feel like spending the time to do it (it was like 2am when I finished the image). I told myself I might go back do that later.
