[B]Impressions of the Aussie bush [/B]
I'd committed to attempting an impressionistic landscape - without reverting to extreme presets, unsharp masks, drastic noise reduction or the like. So I was going for natural tones and hues that gave that soft landscape look - not so easy with an Australian bush scene either as our lines are more angular and harsh that those in Europe and North America.
So anyway here's my attempt. A little tweak of curves and saturation and some vignetting added.
As soon as I saw the thumbnail, I knew it was one of yours and I love your somewhat "old master" palette. Beautifully done just as it is, in my opinion. There's a richness in this one as in a number of your other SIJ photographs that is truly beautiful.
