Such a lovely scene Minnie !!! Color tone looks natural to me and the backlighting is just awesome. Wondering though, since it's a drainage ditch, is it actually as beautiful being there verses your image? Sometimes pictures can lie to us. I remember being in places that were not so pleasant and the picture told a deceiving/different story of beauty. Either way, you have shown the beauty side.
Thank you Dave. This one is lying just a bit, because if you don't see it in that morning light, it is quite ordinary and no one would notice it. But on certain fall mornings, the sun is just right, and it can yield magic. It was MUCH more wonderful before the local Plant Nazis "improved" it by cutting down all the brush and small trees between it and the road. Back in the "old days", about 5 years ago before they showed up, it looked like this on a fall morning.No photoshop or HDR on this one, just the usual Lightroom adjustments
Minnie, I like this one as well !!! The sun rays create mystery and drama. I love all that have been posted, but can't pick a favorite. I hate being so indecisive, LOL !!!
