Here we are again for March for the One Four Challenge. As I spent all weekend cleaning and sanding and prepping to paint all the trim in my bathroom (and have yet to START actually painting!) the easy route is being taken for this month.
This is a tree that according to photos in my hotel room, actually used to be alive, which is a bit odd as it lives about 20 feet out into the sea. Maybe it was blown in on a storm and took root? It is a mystery but it was something I had to go back with my camera and capture on our last morning. This was taken after I waded out about knee deep to get a better angle.
Post Processing Steps:
1. Import original into LR, straighten, crop and lens adjustment
2. Adjust exposure, highlights, shadows, clarity and saturation globally.
3. Put an ND Grad filter over the sky and tweak exposure down a bit and add in more contrast and clarity to the clouds.
4. Export to Nik Silver Efex – this is the Wet Rocks preset
The colour image is nice but I thought a BW would really work well, what do you think?
All feedback and comments welcome!
