Still processing the photos from the Felicianas while waiting for roads to reopen after the Polar Vortex shut down much of the bottom half of the state.

the long oak lined entrance to Rosedown Plantation has these now-weathered pseudo Greek statues interspersed among the trees. The gardens were laid out in the 1830's.

For me, this looks just a bit overprocessed:

* too much brightness where I expect shadows (HDR feeling)

* too much clarity (micro-contrast), which I associate with the Olympus Dramatic Tone.

This results for me in the feeling that those typical hanging vegetation strands do not look real anymore: I think I want them softer and more fluffy.
