Blue-Black-White Landscape

An interesting fact about the Estonian Flag: it is believed to have been based off a landscape painting. I loved this idea. I decided when I first learned this that I would love to try to replicate this landscape with photography. It's not 100% perfect. For one, the painting is Estonia during the winter, making the "white" part of the flag a little easier to accomplish. I took advantage of already being in the water waist high and having the forest backlit (this was an aspect directly from the painting) and tried to work my exposure to get the water looking white and keep the sky blue (I had to use some post-production to push this). Not perfect--still too much green-- but it was fun to attempt!
