Street Tree #199

Exploring Painterly Effects

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 18 mm ISO 400 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, PsCS5; ASSA3

Exploring more painterly effects this week I began with this tree that is living at the intersection of Main Street and Mission Inn Avenue in Riverside, California.  The image is a combination of three exposures initially processed in Lightroom and then merged and tone mapped with Nik Software HDR Efex Pro.  Then working with Photoshop the Alien Skin Snap Art filter was applied and slightly tweaked.

    I’m always fascinated with trees in an urban environment. it’s like a fish out of water but they do so much to make it habitable. Nice shot, Wayne, and nice PP.

  2. Thanks, Ken. I’m not entirely satisfied with my final rendering of this, but it is a learning process.
