this is a winner shot, just a tiny tad to dark to the right bit I'm sure it can be PP to bring it out a bit more.

Cheers,

It could be a toned monochrome
In reply to Belpat, May 6, 2013

It could be toned monochrome, despite the blue. Here's an experiment I did:

  1. Desaturated it in Photoshop, yielding a version with no color at all
  2. Opened the desaturated version in Silver Efex Pro
  3. Toned it with a Selenium tone in a layer above the pure B/W layer
  4. Once the tone was applied, varied the opacity

With an adjusted opacity, could not tell the difference between the shot as you posted it and the selenium toned B/W.

The sepia was a good choice. I've never seen a cherry tree with that inverted conical form.

Photos that offset the organic against the built are a good reminder of that contrast in our world.

Harsh and unwelcoming. Religion is to be taken seriously -- no lightness to it.

To me, posts of two or more images together work best when they're different aspects of the same subject -- same in at least some sense.

Wonderful portrait of two living beings sharing a common activity. You could not have had a better subject than your beautiful daughter.
