Day 227 – 06/20/11 – Leaves & Light

The weather didn’t cooperate with me this evening.  I had another summer fun image in mind, and couldn’t get outside due to the rain and clouds. Then I was struck with an idea to try an experimental shot which took advantage of the wind.  I set up the camera… and guess what happened to the wind?  That’s right, it’s a good thing we’re not sailing anywhere, as the entire yard was suddenly becalmed.

So I decided to play around with black and white a bit.  I need to get some serious practice with black and white effects, as I’m still relying entirely on presets within Lightroom.  I actually made this image just to practice processing.  I have another non-black and white, non-tree image that I had intended to use as the image of the day.  But something about this image just hits me.  To be honest I’m not sure if I like it or not.  My opinion swings back and forth the longer I look at it.  I figured what the heck, I’ll post it and see what you guys think.

  1. I like it, but I think I’m longing for the colors of the leaves!

  2. That’s about the colour it’s been here ALL year!

    I like that b/w shot. The lights are perfect. Does leaves have colors? Hm, maybe I am living in the wrong place…
