It’s been pretty overcast or rainy , and the river has been flowing swiftly so I haven’t been able to get the kind of fall reflections I would like so decided to process in a way that would make it look a little more exciting.
Specific Feedback Requested
Anything , did I maybe go too far with saturation?
Is this a composite: No
Nikon D3400, f/5.3, 1/800, 190mm, ISO 800
Adjusted saturation, exposure, highlights, contrast, flipped image 180.
Wow that’s so great, Vanessa. Well seen in the first place, and I like how you continued that creative push through the processing part, which is often the make or break of a shot like this. Saturation does seem a bit heavy, but it’s the cyan cast that bothers me more. Maybe nudge the slider to the magenta side just a tiny bit.
Hi Vanessa! I like your vision for the processing on this image. I think the orange saturation is just a touch too much, but to me, the saturation and contrast in the reflected tree trunks could be reduced to soften the image a little. That would allow the reflected fall color be more prominent in the image.
Thanks for your suggestions, @Kris_Smith . Not sure if what I did helps, I brought down the cooler colors and upped the orange, yellow and green to make it warmer and I couldn’t help bring out the brightness and saturation at that end….thanks!
Thanks so much @David_Bostock! I’m glad you like what I did. I did want it to be abstract looking but also kind of to look like flames of fire in the trees. I did a rework to bring out more of the warmer colors but still kept the bushes bright and vibrant. Which one do you like better?
