Good evening from a very windy and gusty Hastings.
I have just spent some time playing around with these leaves that I had shot back in the autumn.
This is the first change of colour via the colour gradient.
Brown, but it didn’t have the texture I wanted with the leaves.
The next adjustment with the gradient map turned it green with more texture.
I played around with the colour adjustment to see if I could increase the contrast.
Then back to the gradient map for the more contrast.
For something different I added the magenta colours.
Finally I used one of the filters to just give it a colourful centre, which gives the affect of an inner glow.
I should add that to start with I used the poster edge filter just to strengthen the lines.
The end result is so totally different to the beginning. But that is all part of the fun.
