Mars Sunglasses by James Reade Venable

Photo shot on iPhone 8 Plus.

Artist’s note: I was being taken on a tour of an old mine turned into nature preserve in the Charleroi region of Belgium. When I first visited there I was mesmerized by the local landscape and spoil tips from the coal mines. My father in law arranged for a friend of his to get me special access. I was shooting on a Canon DSLR but this photo from my iphone was a finalist. I was watching a tutorial in Lightroom which showed how to accomplish the colors and I applied that to this photo. It worked.
