Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Leaves and Bark

We all have them and sometimes we wish we could try again or maybe take them back.  So what do you do with those photos that miss the mark?   And this is where the story begins…

I had a photo I really liked but it just didn’t POP.  I loved the composition of the tree and the way its white branches led the eye across the photo.  However, the white didn’t pop and got lost in the background foliage.  I did all the normal things one could do in Lightroom but nothing portrayed what my eye saw.

In frustration I slid the Saturation slider bar to full saturation.  And wow did the white ever explode out of the photo!  A few more adjustments and I had something I really liked.  What a great reminder this was that our photography is an art.  Sycamore Acid was created and the “World on Acid” series was given birth.

I would love to hear what everyone thinks of these – both positive and negative comments are all welcome.  So please let me know what you think…
