Horses Don't Mind the Rain

This is from a September 2013 trip to Leadville, CO. A storm passed through the first afternoon, so I was out shooting in the rain. I started with basic adjustment in LR. Then used Adjust and B&W Effects via Studio to create an intermediate B&W based on one of the Gold Blue presets, see below. Next, I used Nik Silver Efex Pro starting with a sepia tone preset and added film grain. And finally, I added scratches texture and slight vignette with Texture Effects to get this final image.

Thanks for looking and best regards

Thanks Everyone. :slightly_smiling_face:

Howdy Wayne. That sounds pretty hot for your neck of the woods. We’ve been getting some high dew points here in the Twin Cities lately. Blah.

You’re welcome; I hope it’s useful. I’m trying to get back in the habit of writing up post-processing details in my photography notebook. It’s the best way I’ve found to both cement a given method in memory and to spark new ideas.
