Bank Street Tree

I had this dark processing in mind when I photographed this tree in the snow. The third of these three processing methods is an inverted image that makes it look a little like an infrared image.

Method: In Photoshop I cloned out the windows, added a starburst protecting the darks, added a vignette, converted it to B&W, and added a blur and masking out the center. In the third one I inverted the image as well.

    Very interesting to witness your processing magic, Sherry. It’s such an elegant tree, and easy to see why it attracted you. At the risk of sounding unartistic, I like the first photo for all the lines in it. The wavy fence on the left, the snow drift, and the various tree shadows. I’ve read a lot about the recent snow there, so I found the deep snow amazing.

      It’s interesting that you like the unedited version. The windows distracted me from the tree, and I wanted to give it a more ghostly look. It is fun learning how different people view things.

      Thanks Vicki. Some like the middle one more. I like the last one best too, become of its other worldly look.

    What a great subject. It is hard to choose which one I like and the dark mood is perfect. But I will say the second one is very dreamy and ethereal. I am waiting for something to happen when I look at it. Wonderful!

    Really interesting technique. I like how you modified the background to make it look like the tree was at the center of a starburst. But kept the shapes of the tree shadows as a frame.
