I recommend taking detours from your usual journeys once in a while! We usually go walking the same routes when we're up in Scotland but this time got off the beaten path in every sense and found some nice scenes to take photos of. I won't pretend this is anything spectacular, it's just a bit of wood. I really liked the shape and texture, though, and the light was doing nice things reflecting off the nearby stream/river.
I've desaturated using a B&W adjustment layer and punched up the contrast. Then I increased the vibrancy and saturation using the Vibrancy layer in CS4. I know, I know, why desaturate and then resaturate? Well, each was done using a different technique so the resaturation doesn't simply cancel out the desaturation, but resaturates what muted colours remain, and I like the effect it had on the greens.
Cheers for visiting!
