Burnt Copper

Memories of a good walk along the Kennet & Avon Canal. This is why you should buy a DSLR, Mark!

I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at, but I know for sure, it's a pure delight to look at. smile
Dave Carrington: Hi, Viktor. It's a shot of some unkempt, wild foliage along a canal, the bottom third is simply a reflection of it. I've partially inverted & retoned the original shot, which was pretty mundane...
Very beautiful texture.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Frank! Glad you think so smile

Those colours are made in heaven! Beautiful.

Dave Carrington: Hi, Ingrid. It's a constant surprise to me to discover this tonal variety in an otherwise very ordinary shot. I know you're not a fan of excessive 'twiddling', so your comment is much valued!
how the hell have you come up with that Dave? Pure wall art fella. A reflection and a lot of twiddling maybe? Enlighten me pleasesmile
Dave Carrington: Easy, Tim: partially inverted the original shot which was taken on a gloomy afternoon, converted to 32bit & tweaked in channel mixer, then finally boosted the luminosity in match colour. Only took about 3 hours... smilesmile
This looks like a Chinese prints ! Gorgeous !
Good job, Dave.
Dave Carrington: Merci, Fabrice!!

Your description is wonderfully accurate. I does look like patina'd copper. I agree...digital is the way to go. Capturing the image is only half the fun, now.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Travis. You still need to think about composition, but as you say, the fun is in the PP!
Looks quite oriental, a most unusual reflection. I don't normally like false colour but I will make an exception for this one!
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Al. Glad you can make the odd exception! The original shot was very ho-hum: a gloomy late afternoon shot along the canal...
lovely....is this a painting or an treatment shot? either way ...different..but nice to look at indeed...cheers
Dave Carrington: It's not a painting. It's a much PP'd shot!
Dave , dont know how you did this but it wants blowing up and putting on the wall.Just back from Penzance with some 18 x12s for our walls.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Mick. See the above explanations re. processing. It's time I sorted out a few prints...
