Day 347 - Too much giving

South Berwick, ME view map

You can tell it's the holiday season by how many bags of stuff are sitting outside of the Salvation Army bins at the Transfer Station. For today's FGR Challenge, I bring my camera everywhere, I was able to show that I literally bring my camera everywhere. Sunday morning is my Trash day, the transfer station is just around the corner, but I normally bring my gear with me. Usually I take a bit of an extended ride home and find something to shoot, today I decided to find things to shoot at the Transfer Station itself. I had a few other shots that I'd planned on going with until I saw the Salvation Army bins at the gate on my way out. I pulled out and around and parked the Tahoe to walk back and grab a few shots of the bins. After Xmas, these bins will be full again and there will be bag after bag of stuff beside them. I did the selective coloring in LR again, the trick is to paint the entire photo with negative saturation, then selectively remove (erase) the selection of the areas that you want the color to remain. It helped that this is red on white so I could afford to be a little sloppy and it wouldn't matter. It gets tough when you have two colors that border, then you have to be very careful.

Quality image. I love the greenish-blue tint.
