One Four Challenge. March Week 1. Filtered Light

Light Filters Through
Light Filters Through































I was going to use this photo for an opening blog on filters, and I will.

This was taken in McLeodGanj, up in the Kangra area of India. I love the sight of light filtering through the trees. It dances to a cosmic rhythm, and sometimes we are aware of this.

I adjusted the levels. Next step was to add a contrast layer with curves, with a neutral density filter. I then boosted the vibrance a tad, adjusted the green

Finally, I added a last curves layer, along the green channel, and reduced the noise using Nik’s Dfine.



  1. These look like larches, not really a tree I associate with India, but it is such a huge and diverse continent. Is the slightly white misty look due to clouds or mist or did you add that in with processing?

  2. Oh what a beautiful sight and to be there and see that – magical!
    I like what you have done so far Rajiv and am looking forward to the next 3.
