SOMERSET LEVELS 247 – BEHIND THE BEACH

Windblown tree behind the beach; Sand Bay, near Weston-super-Mare; March 2007.

Skeletal, due to the time of year.  And bent over, cringing almost, towards the east, due to the strong westerlies that savage this flat and often desolate coast.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Very effective. Did you reduce the clarity a bit, or add some “glow” or something? I like it!

      Thanks, Lynn, glad it gets to you! Yes, I used Color Efex Pro 4 in the processing – and I can’t recall exactly what I did as I never keep CEP4 recipes – each image is treated differently – but there is some diffusion or glow added to it, something like that.

      I have been very much in the mindset of making (colour) images either to reflect reality or drastically not to reflect it, but now I’m trying things a little more removed from reality – I like the effects and think they can make images more intriguing. I don’t use Photoshop or Lightroom, but CEP4 (like its sister SEP2!) is really quite simple to use and useful. Adrian
