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.
