Painted Eucalyptus – an ant’s-eye view

They’re so fascinating. As the bark peels off, the different layers are different colors.

This is a tree I could hug.

Painted Eucalyptus, Up Close – ProjectEdit365 – 22 July

The original was kind of flat and dull. I increased the vibrance and saturation and used several different adjustment filters – two for the tree and one for the background. I took away the sharpness of the background to make the trunk the focus of the picture. I also darkened it just a bit. I sharpened the tree and reduced the noise and tried to soften the harshness of the overexposed parts.
