Today's image was from my recently completed Northern California Workshop. We awoke to a light rain one morning with no wind. I felt this would provide perfect conditions to work in the old-growth redwood forests. We selected the Lady Bird Johnson Grove, about a 30-minute drive from our hotel.
The light/conditions did not disappoint as there was a luminescent glow emanating from these moss-covered trees (I call this Spanish Moss). The trick is in getting my RAW file to reproduce the way my eye saw the scene. Thanks to my Nik plugin filters, I was able to accomplish this goal in minutes.
To read more about how I achieved this look, please read How to Give Your Images a Luminescent Feel.
