K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge – Woodlands


I took this picture last year.

I love it, but I felt like it needed something extra done with it. My camera washed the scene out; while it looks hazily romantic, it’s not clear enough to see what was there.

Here’s what I came up with: first, I darkened it to make it look closer to the actual scene.


Then, just for fun, I took the colour out of it.


I like the way the swans pop out of the picture in this last one.

Which do you prefer?

For this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,  the prompt was “Into the woods”, giving you a pretty broad theme of trees, woodlands, forests, leaves, anything arboreal in fact. You can find it by clicking

  1. I like all of them. They are each in their way beautiful!


  2. Depending on what you want to communicate, either of the treated pictures would be excellent.

    As an aside Linda, I did a guest post over at Cordelia’s Mom I’d be honored if you had the time to drop by.


  3. I like the last one too. It looks so ethereal! ❤

  4. I like both the treated versions, the last one looks almost Victorian. Thanks for taking part Linda.


  5. I like the middle version 🙂


  6. Oh, I like the middle one best. It’s fuller, richer, warmer; making the area seem as if it goes on for miles… in my humble obzervashun.


  7. This is a great shot, Linda. I was going to say there’s a romantic quality to it, but you beat me to the punch!


Don't hesitate - jump right in!
