The theme for this week seems to be shaping up as ‘images that I wasn’t happy with but finally figured out the right processing this weekend’.  This black and white image of a weathered tree at Chandler Hovey Park was captured on September 1, 2013. I was drawn to this composition in which the tree is able to steal focus from Marblehead Light in large part due to the curve of the clouds mimicking the canopy of the tree.  That being said, the processing never really worked out.

I tried this in color and black and white and while the latter was better in highlighting the structure of the tree, lighthouse and clouds, it was always too…grey. I finally decided to start fresh and hit the literal Reset button on all of my edits and came up with this version which I’m finally happy with. Hope you are as well.
