Week 15: Nature
"We never noticed the beauty, because we were too busy trying to create it."
This was a fairly simple challenge, just head outdoors and shoot pieces of nature that caught the eye. Unfortunately, New York has not yet had 'spring" weather. There are very few blossoms to be seen anywhere. As a result, I searched for non-flowering plants as my inspiration for this week's theme. I noticed this amazing cluster of poison ivy vines about a block away from my house sometime last week. So I headed out to that very spot and snapped a few shots of the vines from several angles. Thereafter, I quickly edited the image in Lightroom to change the overall toning of the image. I made the greens more subtle, but increased the saturation on the yellow/brown leaves. I also tweaked the RGB curve to add a matte-like look and to soften the blacks. It's not the most captivating image, but I do like the final result.
