Silhouetted at Dawn — TreeSquare

Hi, all 😃 My entry for Becky’s July TreeSquare. This is also my entry for Tina’s Lens-Artists Challenge #154 — One Photo Two Ways, July Processing Challenge by the Squirrel Chase, & Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Trees or Tree Parts.

…and the original; I think I prefer this to the square crop 🤔

But I’m not finished; I edited through a monochrome filter for Cee’s Black & White Challenge, then tried desaturating it for a colder feel as the original has a lot of warmth to it, owing to the depth of colour (it was about -1℃ after all) & finally trying a dramatic cool filter.

  1. wow, what a post – all four of us have been spoilt. You are right though my Squareness doesn’t add to the photograph on this occasion!

  2. Lovely landscape Jez – was the opening image the original? Funny to see a bare tree as it’s so lush and green here right now. You must post an image of the tree when all of the foliage comes in!

    1. Thanks, Tina 😊 Yes, the featured image was the original. The shot was taken in January, hence the lack of foliage; I’ll need to get back up there again soon.

Great to hear your thoughts 😃
