It is very cold here at the moment. We are eagerly awaiting the Spring in September, so there is still two months to go! All of the deciduous trees have lost their leaves and are now completely bare. I am glad that where I live, most of the trees are evergreens, so the landscapes stay mostly unchanged.
A tree such as this one is very eye-catching for that reason. My eyes were drawn to the delicate and intricate pattern of the elegant branches! I took several photographs of the tree, and only two turned out to be of use to me. The one had a bird in it but the tree was cut off by the composition that I used. The other one had just the tree —which is the on bellow— but without the bird in it. I used Photoshop to cut out the bird and seamlessly merge it into the image. I really do love the resulting images!
Of the two edits, which version do you think best suits the photo? The first one edited in Analog Efex Pro, or the second one edited in Color Efex Pro?
Editing for both photos: Camera Raw and Photoshop.
