Fall color is pure magic! Living in Florida, I can never get enough of it. With this image, the color is accentuated by the fog... and a little Photoshop! I liked the composition, but the white background wasn't attractive and I wanted to "fill in the blank." That was easy to do using a second photo of trees for the background! The addition of trees helps tell the story I had in mind. To create a painterly effect, I used the Portrait Smooth preset in Topaz Adjust which enhanced the colors and softened the overall image. Make great pictures!
