|Focal length:||20 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/30 sec|
|Notes:||I chose a woodland view with plenty of distance/background light. The image was cropped to a 10X8 format. Small amount of contrast was added and also a small amount of Gamma change to help increase difference between front and rear of shot. Next, using the burn tool the foreground was darkned further and also the dark side of tree trunks. The dodge tool was used to lighten the background and light side of trunks.Finally unsharp mask Radius 50, Amount 20, Threshold 0|
