This In­ten­tional Cam­era Move­ment (ICM) scene was up­loaded to our Twit­ter page us­ing the hash­tag #ap­pi­cofthe­week. It was taken by pho­tog­ra­pher Dan Sax­tonMcCabe. He tells us, ‘I wanted to ex­ag­ger­ate the form of the land and the colours in the sky, whilst keep­ing the sub­tle de­tails of Eg­g­bor­ough Power Sta­tion [in North York­shire] to por­tray the neg­a­tive im­pact of pol­lu­tion on our planet. ICM helped cre­ate the wa­ter­colour ef­fect in the first ex­po­sure, and min­i­mal move­ment on the sec­ond helped main­tain de­tail of smoke bil­low­ing from Eg­g­bor­ough. I blended the two ex­po­sures in Pho­to­shop us­ing marks, tweaked the sat­u­ra­tion, con­trast and also ap­plied some dodg­ing/burn­ing ad­just­ments.’
