Great North Woods #1 2013 – Peg

Dead Trees in Sunlight

This was a quick shot taken by the side of the Golden Road, in Millinocket.  The dead trees had a beautiful warm sidelit glow coming from the setting sun.  The pond gave a glimpse of a reflection and new growth sprung up everwhere in the form of new trees and purple flowers.

A review in our critique session using Lightroom taught me how to bring up the warm sunlight as well as how to saturate the foreground and background and enhance the light blue sky.  It was an invaluable lesson in how Lightroom, in a few easy steps, brought out the best in this image.
