Impressions of a Fall Tree

I had an image of a tree with yellow and orange leaves that looked a bit flat. I added a vignette (in Photoshop) and then reversed it from dark to light. I saved that one (above) and made a copy to play with a little more. On it I added a filter to bring out the edges of the leaves and then cropped in on a section of the photo.

Which one do you prefer?


  1. The light in the first one attracts me more.

  2. The two of photography in its own way to me interesting.

  3. I like the second one best - but seeing them both together is even more interesting as they show two sides of the same thing!

  4. I like the first one because it looks more realistic, but I like the second one because it looks more artsy! Haha! :-)

  5. Those are both interesting photos, but I think the first ozone is more effective.

  6. The top one, personally, but it's interesting seeing both like this. They both have an abstract feel to them.
