Something Wicked This Way Comes.

I really liked this twisty oak and did the below to accentuate the look.

This is Daves ir action(from action central). End of action activated Hue and Saturation layer, unchecked colorize, found a tint, lowered saturation level to the barely there shade I wanted.

Suzan, your reference to Bradbury is perfect for this photograph, and I think you chose well in using the IR action. What a fantastic tree this is, and it deservesthe aura of fantasy. Good thinking and lovely photo.

Barbara, are you ready for this?

Suzan, I like it. It would be interesting to see the "before" photo for comparison. Your treatment give the tree a very eerie, forboding look. Good work.

Suzan, do you realize that Cal just said something completely out of character?!

Ok here it is.
This was a butt to meter, extremely light and dark areas. I really liked the tree so tried the IR action as a solution. The IR action covered a multitude of overly dark and blown out light areas.

Uh-oh. I prefer the original color version, and here's the "uh-oh" part: I haven't the least notion why I prefer it. More contrast? Beautifully other-worldly all on its own? I sure hope just one other person agrees with meand alsohappens to actually know why.

I'm sorry Suzan, but I'm having a really dumb day.:sad:
