Autumn Bark

By Possum  
Apologies for my prolonged absence, haven't had much time with the camera lately Sad

Took a trip into the New Forest yesterday morning and was lucky to catch some glorious light. This amazing tree, surrounded by bracken, was backlit by the sun and just beautiful to behold, with the bark full of the colours of autumn.

Shot on F2.8 (in hindsight, should maybe have used F6.3 or higher to achieve more detail, but F2.8 diffused much of the b/ground for me and still retained the light).

Added a very slight touch of LucisArt Whyeth, and adjusted levels/curves/brightness, etc.

Am rambling now... best be off Smile

Thanks for looking, all C & C welcome, as this is a change for me!

Lovely Allie.... like the diagonal comp on this one draws you to the lovely textures/tones in the bark and a peep at that lovely autumn fern... nice focus work and 'richness'.
