Planting Fields Flowers

A dozen flowers. This will be the last for a while, until I get more photographs.

Planting Fields Trees

There are a variety of wooded landscapes at the Arboretum. The Japanese maple looks like a large Bonsai.

I guess they are not going to get the flower pot back from under the roots by the bench.

Planting Fields Arboretum B and W

It was such a hot day on Saturday at the Planting Fields Arboretum in Long Island, NY that it subdued my mood. I came with a group of photgraphers and everyone split up, so I spent most of the day alone. I processed these to show how I felt.

For those who like to know. I took the image from Lightroom to Photoshop, applied a black and white filter or converted it to black and white using onOne Effects, then added a brown gradient map with blue in the mid tones in Photoshop. For the lavender and roses I masked out the flowers on an additional violet or pink gradient map.

PFA Sunflower

Despite the heat I took loads of photographs at the Planting Fields Aroboretum. This is one of many (more to come). I feel it looks better on its own. I often like to desaturate green.
