About the Image(s)

We're getting a lot of TV coverage about Melbourne and its 11 days of lockdown. COVID is rising here and keeping me pretty well concentrated in my county. The fall colors have faded and I'm not chasing them down state because of the COVID so will have to wait for the snows to come.

Very nice abstract feeling. I think the muted tones work well.   Posted: 11/08/2020 12:36:57

Trey - I like the PP which brings out the colors and details, I'm guessing Topaz... Well done!   Posted: 11/09/2020 05:39:26

Quite right Cyndy, Topaz. Ian included my message to him so here's the lead and the tech stuff: The bark texture on the oak tree's trunk and limb interplays with the oak and birch leaves and birch tree trunk and limbs giving a unique glimpse into what a woodland's canopy looks like in autumn alongside a Central Wisconsin lake. Standard PS and LR processing, then put into TopazStudio for a couple of sharpening/texture presets. Tech stuff: ISO 100, f/11, 1/5 second, pattern metering, 170mm.   Posted: 11/09/2020 08:46:09

I'm so sorry for my slipup with that Trey. I will say I had a senior's moment.   Posted: 11/17/2020 17:59:51

Very nice shot Trey. I especially like horizontal and vertical
orientation of the branches with good bark detail.

This is a great image Trey, very strong indeed. While your original is not lacking, your processing has lifted it and made it more capturing. This one should definitely be printed, framed and hung on your walls.   Posted: 11/17/2020 18:04:51

Thanks for your comments! My rule of thumb is not to print anything for my wall until a year after I process it. If it endures that long with me, then it's worth it. I have too many framed art prints and photos as it is haha!   Posted: 11/21/2020 09:58:23

The composition, color and textures in this image are just great. I can't think of anything to improve upon. Well done.   Posted: 11/19/2020 13:38:37

A fine image Trey. When I look at it it makes me think of a very exiting book 'The secret life of trees' by Peter Wohlleben. To me it looks like the trees are communicating.
Your PP has lifted the original.   Posted: 11/21/2020 09:10:24

That sounds like an interesting book, I'll have to check it out. Thank you.   Posted: 11/21/2020 09:59:34
