A walk in the woods is my place for contemplation. A dripping fog in morning sun completely masked by gray sky makes everything soft and quiet. This is our woods in the January morning fog. Working on the idea of impressionism, and reduced detail. Key adjustments: reduced both contrast and clarity, tweaked hue and luminence of orange and green color channels. Raised shadows while lowering highlights. Shot at 1/8th with ever so little wrist tilt at shutter release. 25 or more images taken before finding one I liked. In reality, the forest floor is dull brown in this light, but these orange/copper hues exist within that ordinary, and Lightroom knows how to find them and bring them forward.
