Curling up before dying - prairie grasses
DP309-2015 Posted Thursday afternoon, November 5
This was shot in full sunlight (unfiltered version here: https://arctangent.smugmug.com/SeasonsoftheYear-3/4th-Fall/2015-D-Fragments-of-Fall/i-ZRSFhXJ/A), but I'm in a somber mood, so I decided to see whether I could modify it so reflect my mood.
This is my first effort. A BW conversion in Photoshop, followed by a Sepia and Gold filter in Topaz Labs BW package, along with Simplify and Diffusion creative effects within that filter. Now the bright circles of confusion remind me a little of fireflies on a summer evening. So, a tension between dark and light, somber and cheery.
