WHY THE RECIPE
The picture was taken very early in the morning on the way to my customer in Luxembourg. It was one of the first real foggy mornings in November.
I thought in the first moment this would be a great picture for "Creamy Color" because the tired morning mood and the fog still fit the dull colors and the enhanced tone curves.
However, I quickly saw that with the strong warm white balance of (K8700) the headlights of the coming vehicles no longer stand out well from the overall scene.
A short change to my small compact Fuji XF 23mm f2 and the FLD filter on my Fuji X-E4 I had with "50s DINER" the perfect for me color balance of the individual light elements in conjunction with this blue-gray morning mood.
Through the FLD filter, the fog gets a slightly stronger blue-purple touch which I find but druch the contrasting colors of the spotlights very good. Often it is for me the color balance that makes an image special for me.
