About the Image(s)

This photograph of a stream running through Forest Lawn Park in Buffalo New York was taken late afternoon early this summer. I experimented with the channel mixer, not following the 100% switch rule in the red and blue channels. Instead, I switched at 50% setting the two remaining values at 25%. I discovered that to dial in purer whites in foliage you must tweak the green channel, also, doing this provides more options when subsequently using the color selection sliders. Then, employing the camera raw filter in PS CC 2019, I raised the highlights and dehazed it a notch. Finally, applying Topaz Sharpen AI, the trees in the distance were sharpened. Camera data: Nikon D7000 (590nm filter), f/18, 1/100th, 40mm, ISO=125.

This reminded me a bit of your October image, Charles, looks like the same stream, but a different composition. Again here I like the way the stream provides a leading line, and the use of the blue, both in the sky and in the stream itself, is very effective. You've achieved beautiful whites on the leaves.   Posted: 12/10/2019 14:39:29
