I managed to take a short stroll in between out of office meetings today. In a newly built suburb in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, I happened across a small hill that lead to a rugby/football field. Separating that and the houses was a ‘Passageway of Pine trees’ As usual during the week, armed with my Ricoh, I got right down low and took a few shots through the passage. Avoiding any houses and a wind break material on one side, I love how the final image gives off little clue I am in the middle of suburbia.
In Gimp post production, I cropped slightly, upped the saturation go highlight the green and get a little blue in the sky. Upped the contrast a notch and applied a light sharpening layer. Done!
