Day 21 POTD: Chilly Old House

Before:


Not in focus, but I still kind of like it. I'd love to go back there, in warm weather, getting family members to agree to stop when we're on our way from Here to There. This was shot again at 75 mph through a car window with fog and hoar frost everywhere, with an 18-135 mm lens at 52mm, manual focus, wb cloudy; ISO 800; exp 1/125; f/11, and with a polarizing filter.

After:
I used Ren's defog action, adjusted levels, sharpened further, and this was the best I could do.

If you look at my layout below, you'll see, sort of, a self-portrait (from last summer), and I used a gradient mask to blend several photos together. Thanks for looking and, as always, CC appreciated.

I like this shot, and definitely worth a trip back there on a warm day! Very cold here too - can't wait for spring, or at least wind chills above zero!

I'm so impressed with what you can get out of a car window! Looks like you've warmed up some. It's practically balmy now LOL.
