O Christmas Tree (HDR)

Christmas is over and we started to clean up the house today and take down the decorations.  The tree was our last item to tackle.  As I took a break this morning, I looked at the tree and yes, I HDR’d it and even tried an Infrared Photo (which was not good enough).  As I looked at the tree…I thought why not shoot it monochrome!  As I shot it this way, I decided to go ahead and get a few additional color shots.    I like closeup tree shots and processed my HDR’s from this morning just a bit ago.  They were cool, but we have all seen a tree HDR’d.  I even posted mine on XMas. I wanted something different.

I added the pic into NIK’s Software…played with Color Efex Pro…just ok.  Then tried my original thought of monochrome in Silver Efex Pro.  Then I clicked on the “Antique Plate II” setting and that was it!  I tweaked the contrast and hue/saturation a bit.  So here is my last holiday shot of the season!   New Years is next!!  See ya next year XMas!!
