I played around with this image for a while and I am unsure whether I like what I have done or not. The shot was slightly underexposed to begin with looking like a silhouette against a greyish sky. The sun had created a hot shot behind the branches and the whole picture looked flat.
I decided to run the picture through tiffin digital filters and used a light ray option to add a dynamic element. I liked the effect but did tone it down to make sure it wasn’t too overboard. Back in Lightroom I worked mainly on the colour toning, balancing the coldness of the day with the warmth of autumn colours.
I think I like the idea of the image more than the final outcome. It could be that I need to return to the filter and tone it down some more.
Let me know what you think in the comments, is it a success or does it just not work for you?
