We were in Mexico having breakfast or lunch, and I looked up and saw this wonderful pattern of leaves and branches. Immediately, I saw it as a black-and-white photograph and used Lightroom to do a b/w infrared conversion that I knew would make the leaves go pale and accent the branches. Other than that, there was very little editing/developing, as I prefer to do it in the camera, just as I did back in the days of film. While the title is “Tulum Snow” and there was no snow in that part of Mexico (tried to locate a region_north_america tag), for sure, it reminded me of the stark branches on a New England winter’s day.
Really love the highkey look of this image and how the main branch leeds the eyes along the diagonal.
Thanks for sharing,
João, that is exactly what caught my eye. I tend to see in diagonals and triangles. Thank you for noticing!
Wonderful treatment of the leaves … sending them to white. I know exactly what images I want to try that on from my archives!
I thought it was a way to really bring out the structure of the branches. And thank you!
