Stonehenge

Bath, NT15, Northern Trident 2015, Stonehenge
Back in 2015 I visited the U.K. (among a number of other countries), and visited Stonehenge. This place is set up for tourists, with a major visitors centre and car park a couple of kilometres from the actual site, with constant people carriers ferrying visitors back and forth. Or you could walk (which my colleagues and I did). With the crowds you might think that it would be hard to find a composition with few people. But if you worked your angles carefully and shot tight, it was possible to have just a couple of people in scene. In this image I only cloned out about four individuals. The sky was quite dramatic on the day, but the SOOC image had a fairly washed out sky. This was restored using Photoshop and the Color Efex Pro 4 filter that is part of the Nik Collection by DxO package. Stonehenge was a great location to shoot an iconic landmark and to enjoy the British countryside.
