Finally Fall by rocamiadesign

At last we have some Fall colors around here. This may just be an ornamental shrub, but at least it’s red. I found this in a neighbor’s yard and photographed from underneath to get the bright sky that I needed. I have no idea what kind of shrub this is.

Photo taken in Columbia Falls, Montana with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera and edited in Photoshop CS. I did HDR processing on this before changing it to high key, in order to bring out the details in the leaves more. It was relatively easy to eliminate the background by selecting the blue from the sky and deleting it. This didn’t require any erasing. I used a convolution filter on an extra layer and blended it with soft light to give the leaves a bit of an edge.
