Lab Color

Finished two foliage images today, while experimenting with Lab color in Photoshop.  It’s an excellent process to learn.  The images, however, are missing something:  a focal point to really apprehend the viewer.  That’s ok for now, it’s good diving in, rolling up the sleeves, and playing without a time crunch.  Still, need to work on that creative eye.  Two eyes and a brain need to get to work on results, not just on experiments.

Both images are of a single pair of trees in Mill Creek.  They’re the most multi-colored trees I’ve ever seen.  Each year this maple tree pair shows yellows, reds, blue-reds, greens, and blue-greens – simultaneously!  This fall is especially good for maples in Puget Sound, and these two are the stars of the show as always.
