Tree Abstraction

Tree Abstraction

Happy Sunday!

I have been back from England for a week more or less…but this is the first image from home. Rachel Carson NWR and the little 1 mile trail there never fails. It was late in the day and it is getting late in the season. I was surprised, when processing these images, to see how low the light levels really were. I guess summer really is over here in Maine.

This is just light on bark and lichen, but it builds an interesting image: a found abstraction. Lots of texture and detail, and yet a strong simple form.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F2.7 @ 1/60th @ ISO 100. Programed auto. -1EV exposure compensation.

Simple added Clarity and Vibrance in Lightroom. Blackpoint to the right. A bit of Fill Light.  Sharpen landscape preset.
