One foggy evening in January this year at the Columbia River bank, the sky was getting dark, the fog like a curtain covered all the hills in other side of the river and isolated the island in the middle of the river. It was beautiful and dreamy scenery. I took several overlapped photos with my Nikon D800 and Gitzo tripod. For the photo post process, first I merged two original photos to form a panoramic picture and then used Silver Efex Pro 2 to remove the colors from the picture, added the blue color to the sky with Color Efex Pro 4 . With CS6 motion blur combined with Gradient tools I got the milky effect of the water. The picture still looked too plain to me. I have to do something to change that. Instead of doing additions on the picture, I tried the subtraction approach to get rid of all unnecessary trees and lights. kept only one group, let everything else melted into the sky and water. Here I have a minimalism picture as the result. The most important thing to me is that the mood is right this time, exactly the impression I had from Columbia River in that foggy evening.
