"Divergent Paths" (8-13-17 018v2) was just fussed from its original pic taken earlier today. I've taken many shots of this view and posted at least a couple of the results I'm sure. But I always have trouble with certain aspects of this particular scene. And I did again: that tall tree in the upper left always shows up so dark that it's quite distracting. (Even as cropped way back as it is here.) However, this time I had the lasso function in Photoshop in my arsenal. I'm still learning when and how best to try using it .. and it worked this time! One essentially draws a loop around the only area one wants effected by a filter/function. Not as simple as it sounds and not always effective. But it's been a boon a couple of times recently. I lightened those dang leaves and even changed their hue a wee bit, without effecting anything else in the pic. Yes! BTW, I did do other work, mostly on colors and contrasts, and a wee bit of diffusing and sharpening. It was good to feel like taking pix on this gorgeous day. I then walked over that footbridge down as far as one can see in this pic, and sat on my walker, editing some of my poems. It was also good to be reminded of all there is to be grateful for in this life.
