The Tree

Tonemapped from a single RAW file.

Cropped.

Aggressive noise reduction including some smudging.

Mild cloning to reduce the plane trails

Adjusted the levels in the grass area then some dodging and burning to blend in with the light in the rest of the picture.

Sharpened.

Framed.

Pretentious title.

A nod to the ego.

Turd polished.

 

Works well on black
