The Promises of Springtime

****better on black****


A shot I’ve been wanting for a while, but every time I went to the city, something about it wasn’t right. Finally I got something I could live with, so I cooked it up. Still toying with new editing techniques. My goal is to get better and cleaner, but also continue to be efficient. Work in progress for sure. Thank goodness for actions! Anyway, had to prink down the red/pink/magenta just a hair, as it was a little too much for my sensor to chew on. Hope you like. Cheers.
