I had went upstate to Sullivan county with another photographer and friend, Georgine Benvenuto. We had nothing but bright sun and clear cloudless skies (not great for landscape and outdoor photography).
Spotted this tree swing and decided to use the blank clear bright sky and hard sunlight to create the stark and minimilist scene of this somewhat scary tree with swing.
Added a sepia type toning through some gradient mapping as well as trimming away some distracting elements and came up with something I thought worked as i imagined when I first began composing the shot in my viewfinder.
Sorry its been so long since I have posted or visited any other blogs. Been too busy for my own good. . .
