Buckeyes – Fall Series

To be tethered
Taken at Helen Putnam Regional Park

I took my daughter out for a break from the rest of the family to take some pictures. It had been a hard day and she likes taking pictures, so I made her come with me. It was great just be outside, looking around for whatever caught our eye. I looked for Fall themed shots to add to the series and saw these trees. The sky was a deep blue and made a nice background for the tree branches with no leaves. Buckeye trees are the first to change colors and loose their leaves, at least in this area.

Today my trial of Lightroom expired, so I’m back to using Digital Photo Professional. It’s a fine program, just not as elegant as Lightroom and nowhere near as flexible. But, as Shelton Muller always says
on the Shutters Inc podcast, “get it right in camera”, so that’s what I try to do. The processing on this shot was minimal, so I did get it right when I shot it.
