There is a cemetery in Portland's west hills that is dotted with trees standing completely on their own. In the summer and fall the trees are often backlit by really amazing sunsets but today it was just mildly cloudy. Although there is some texture in the sky I decided to play with some of the effects in the new OnOne Suite 6. We all spend time trying to remove stray dust from our sensors but in this case I used their ground glass effect. It really does put me in mind of all the time I used to spend in the darkroom back in the days of film and the beauty of imperfection.
