Color Of The Season...

...a Fall moment

I took this picture of a landscape tree last Monday at a shopping center along Big Bear Boulevard while Dallas and I were out walking. The gray background is actually the white stucco wall of a supermarket with the sun peaking over the roof. The wind was quite strong that morning, making it difficult to focus on the fluttering leaves, so I took about twenty shots before coming up with a good one. The picture was perfectly fine as taken but I really liked the way it looked after a little bit of manipulation in Photoshop. I applied brushstrokes/accented edges and slightly increased the color saturation which created a rich even-toned graphic image.
