the tree at night
on thursday night i went back to take a picture of my tree. I set up the camera and took 10 pictures - each of 15 second exposures. I then layered these 10 shots in photoshop, set the blending mode of the first to normal, next 7 to screen, next to soft light and the top to hard light. then adjusted the curves a little, changed the colour balance to 100% red 100% yellow and 64% magenta. then used the channel mixer and changed the red output channel to 86% red 14% green and -36% blue. then adjusted the levels slightly and finally added a vignette. phew. i wasn't following any particular method - just making changes until i liked the result.
