tree line by pistache

tree line

driving home cross country from getting together with an old friend for lunch. we met when we both lived in sweden and had six little boys between us of similar ages, so understood one another from the start ;) if we each drive 90 minutes we can meet in the middle, so that's what we did. then i came across this lovely scene just outside the charming market town of chipping norton in oxfordshire
I cant look at a photograph nowadays without being curious about the process of the processing. Is this what you call split-tone? Did you drain the blue out of it to get that dull sky and the yellow in the fields? or is this as you saw it? The contrast of the dark trees and hedge lines emphasising the curves of the land and the straight horizon, make this really enjoyable for me.

@helenhall nothing as clever as any of that! i used my olympus in-camera dramatic filter and then added a llghtroom preset from the luxe lens that i rather like ... the original had some yellow, and the preset enhanced it ... thank you for your interest as always :)

Interesting, my first take from the small image was that the sky had actually been converted to B&W since it is almost devoid of colour compared to the rest but, once it opened up the slight tints of colour were more obvious.I'm with @helenhall in that these days I can't help trying to dissect photos and their processing.

Gorgeous composition! Love all the layers. The foreground invites you in and the layers lead your eye up through the image. Especially love how the top land layer shows beautiful silhouettes of the trees. Big fav.
