  1. The lush grass and the surreal twiginess (?) of the background really makes the oaks pop. Has a slight HDR feel to it (for me), but in a good way.

    1. Thanks Jeff! Yes, I wanted to blend all the elements into each other, so lots of mid-tones. It’s not actually an HDR (I almost never do HDR) – I reduced the highlights and contrast a lot, and added a ton of micro-contrast (Clarity) instead to bring out all the details.
