I'm going off the deep end, that is for sure. I can't imagine many people going to the backyard to take photos of a palm tree that's half dead. But, what the heck ... just keep shooting and playing and maybe I'll learn something!
Today was just for play. I shot the images and then, in Lightroom, played with all the settings to see what would happen. I worked with the original images and then turned them into black and white and added some different colors. So, here are the original images, followed by the artsy-fartsy versions. ☺
Okay, this shows highlights and shadows.
What what would the same photo look like when you turn the highlights into aqua?
I actually like this photo of a new palm shoot, seemingly growing out of nowhere. And I like the colors for sure.
But changing the entire hue? ... not sure my eyes are ready for this. ☺
Palm trees are so interesting because of the little threads that pop out of the fronds.
And they are even more interesting when you jazz them up a bit.
No, I won't be entering these images in any contests, but they sure gave me some practice using Clyde (my camera) and my photo processing software!
