Image for August.

Summer is the time for outdoor festivals and events of all kinds. This is one reason why I decided to pick another image from the Pioneer Acres Annual Show and Reunion as my “Image for August”. The other reason is that I really like this shot! Of all the things that I saw that day, it was the draft horses and the steam tractors that I enjoyed the most. After initial processing of the RAW file in Lightroom 5, I converted the image to black and white using Silver Efex Pro 2. In order to give it an appearance that fits the scene I used the Antique Plate preset and just a touch of vignetting. Photographed using a Nikon D800 with a 70 – 200 mm f 2.8 lens at f 8.0 and 1/320 sec.
