A little over a week ago I wrote about a photo I had taken of leaves in black and white. The post can be found here. One of the things that I had been hoping to do was show the frost on the leaves. Lori Ono, who commented on the original post, suggested some ways in which I might bring out the frost in the editing. I used some of those suggestions to make this version:
This time I think the frost, particularly on the stems of the leaves, is visible. In order to get this effect, I first put the photos into black and white with a blue filter in Aperture. Then I edited the bracketed photos in Photomatix. I cropped and sharpened the photo when I brought it back into Aperture.
If you click on Lori’s name above, it will take you to a photo challenge posting she wrote that I think turned out really well.
