Fairmont Falls, Philadelphia
The unique color in this 309mm photo of Fairmont Falls (by the Philadelphia Art Museum) is thanks to mixed light sources. Getting interesting color from a monochromatic scene on a heavily overcast day involved carefully timing this shot. The image is custom white balanced using the falling water, which leaves the rest of the photo blue and red toned. The blues are from reflections of a late day cloudy sky. The reds are reflections of street lights. The motion-blurred water is thanks to a 30 second f/11 exposure.
