This is the spot from where $2 ferry leaves for one of the most spectacular 20min open-air rides from Lachine Canal along Saint Lawrence River. The ferry is not operational at the time of year but the pontoon deck is not removed yet. I jumped over the fence and took few shots, setting the tripod on the deck, trying to include plenty of fall foliage into the composition.
Shooting & Processing
Shooting and processing were easy. I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod but used only middle exposure for editing.
I used Lightroom Rapid Editing, applying Open Sky preset first from Fall Colors Collection and then used TOOLKIT adjustments.
