Today’s post features a delicate detail of leaves backlit by warm, early morning light. The fresh yellow/green colors of the original image are contrasted with the luminous silver/grey of the black-and-white rendering. I feel each version talks to us about the luminous quality of light and provide an equally interesting view of our world. Which do you prefer?

Processing was conducted in Adobe Lightroom 2 and Adobe Photoshop CS4. In the case of the black-and-white rendering a Black and White Adjustment layer was created in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
