Taken on an early morning drive from Palmerston North to Auckland.
As an art photographer I like to add elements to my images that enhance the feeling that I want the viewer to experience while looking at the image .In this particular photo I wanted the viewer to feel the dampness of the air and the warm shimmer of the first rays if sunlight .
To achieve this I used layers. There are three layers in total. One layer is the original image taken early morning. The second layer is the same scene, but I have applied Vaseline to a glass filter to give a misty watery effect. The third layer is fine foliage to add a more interesting texture.
I was really happy with the final outcome of these three layers, and feel I have achieved the effect I was aiming for. I hope you enjoy the image.
