Glowing Seed Pods
Here is, pretty much, my favorite shot from the trip. Of course, I got many shots from Michigan that I love, and I am glad of that. This is a closer and vertical version of the last shot that I posted. I love how I composed this shot and how it ended up after split-tone processing.
What do you like about this shot?

Flora & Bokeh
This is one of my favorite shots I got from my Michigan vacation because of the unique perspective, and, of course, the awesome bokeh in the background. This one as well, if you've been following my last few posts, was taken in the morning around the "golden hour." Hope you like this shot! Have a wonderful day! : )

I hope you all enjoy this shot and have the most wonderful day!

This daisy portrait was taken on a cloudy day, which provided very soft light. I edited this shot a little more than I usually do. In Adobe Lightroom, I had to take care of all the dust and pollen specks on the flower and do some basic edits. Then in OnOne Purfect Affects, I added a film filter, which is why it has a cooler, matted look to it.

Textured Split-Tone - the best combination..
After a while of warm weather, in early March, we got a surprise snow so I decided to go out again for a photowalk. I came to this plant and started shooting it. I then looked at the picture(, I often do this to visualize artistic possibilities when I am out of ideas) and thought that the cold colors of the snow in the background and the warm colors of the shrub would be a great contrast. I planned, in post, to exaggerate the color contrast even more by split-toning it. With the help and participation of my friend, +SpringrockFarm, I added a texture with the new and awesome Perfect Affects 9.5 by +ON1.
Hope you all enjoy this shot, and have a wonderful day!

Split-toning a Winter Photo
This is another shot from +SpringrockFarm's beautiful woods.
       I have realized that split-toning is a very excellent way to process your winter photos and make them unique and not boring. In this one, I made the highlights a certain kind of green and the shadows a deep red. This helps make it more intriguing, which is important in winter photos because they often turn out of camera very bland.
I hope you all like this shot! : D

Split-Toned Winter Weed
       In third day of my visit to Michigan, the same day that I discovered and photographed the ice-crystals, I found this interesting weed that, when held up to the sunlight, would seem to glow. These type of shots are one of the best types to do split-tone processing on. 
       As you probably noticed in my posts of the ice-crystals, I like to show the best for last. That is what I am going to do again, so my next post will be my favorite shot I took of this plant. AND, after that, I will be posting my winter snowflake reel. Have a wonderful Thursday!!! : D

The Art of Split-Toning: Vertical Dandelion Scenic
       I composed this shot a bit differently than I did the others by, first, orienting it to a vertical aspect, then positioning the hanging seed to be at the bottom-right. This works as a more "scenic" shot because you can see more of what the seed is hanging from.
       I hope you all like this shot. I wish you a wonderful day!

The Art of Split-Toning: Single Dandelion Seed
       This shot is of a single loose dandelion seed hanging off the plant itself. I did basically the exact same treatment with this one as I did with the last dandelion. But I think I will do a little recap.
       When editing this, I just synced the settings with the last shot, but I will explain everything. One of the main things I did was split-toning, which is why I named this post "The Art of Split-Toning." Split toning is changing the color tint for each highlights and shadows. So I made the highlights of this shoot blue-ish, and the shadows, I made red-ish. This, I find, is a great complimentary match.
I hope you all have enjoyed this photo and your day. Thanks!

Split-Toning Magic
This shot, I took of a dandelion-type weed that has really beautiful form. But one of the variables that made this image pop for me is when I changed the messed around with split-toning in Lightroom.
I think, now, that split-toning is almost NECESSARY with silhouette to slightly back-lit photos. Hope you like the photo. Thanks! : )
