How I got there:


I’ve been playing around with the develop settings in Lightroom to obtain the Surreal Edgy Effect that Matt Kloskowski recently showed in a Lightroom Killer Tips video. It’s really fun. Here’s a photo of a tree I liked while in Carmel this summer. I liked the tree because it was really big and gnarly. However, by using some of the suggestions in Matt’s video, I’ve created a tree in a setting that is even more appropriate for Halloween. Imagine using this as a backdrop with a “wee one” in front. Eh? This is really fun stuff.
