Trees are stripes, leaves are dots, color is everywhere

Woods, with tall trees and a cover of red autumn leaves on the ground. Picture taken in the parc of the "Chateau de Breteuil", near Paris.

 

For post-processing, I reconstructed the image from raw in darktable using 3 different white balance for the lower, upper, and middle part of the image: respectively pulling toward red, blue, and green-yellow. To create the effect on the trees, I used the gimp, with motion smoothing on a couple of layers: one on which I modulated locally the mask, and the other with a "lighten-only" setting. Finally, I reconstructed another version of the image with a very high contrast, and added it in "lighten-only" on top of everything, to create the non-blurred leaves that stand out.
