Week 2 GPlus Project 52
So I stumbled across this shot, a nearly leafless tree with a cold looking sky as it's backdrop. And when I framed it I immediately knew I was going to make this a black and white and bring the color back to the leaf. Not much work was needed to be done in Aperture to prepare the photo for Silver Effex Pro, so it was a relatively simple Silver Effex conversion and selective color setup. Sadly the leaf was pretty flat color wise, and any attempt on my part to boost it's saturation and colors just made it look too fake.
