Ben, the ice is nice! Are these in St. Louis?

Thanks Preston. These are in STL, just east of Grand and Washington. I took them several years ago.

Very nice ice, Ben. How did you get such rich color and smoothness in the backgrounds?

I adjusted lights, darks and sharpening in photoshop and then resolved any noise issues using DFine. However the colors came out pretty rich in the camera. I used to shoot with the saturation settings cranked all the way up inside the camera (I don't do this anymore). I focused my editing efforts more on getting the ice right than I did on the colors. But I definitely enjoy both.
