While out snowshoeing yesterday I kept an eye out for tree trunks that would fit with this week’s theme. This is probably a small yellow birch, but it was that tiny branch that caught my attention. Glad it wasn’t buried yet. We have more snow on the way today so it might be soon. I like the almost pastel colors in the tree. The more mature specimens in this preserve were among the yelllowest yellow birches I’ve ever seen.
Should I clean up the snow more? I got rid of the largest bits of debris, but left this sprinkling.
Is this a composite: No
Lr for basic RAW processing which was basically a nice curves adjustment with raised whites and lowered blacks - kept the shadows low, too, because the tree is so light in color. A bit of texture, clarity and sharpening. Ps to remove some dust spots from a dirty lens and some debris.
