Your effects are terrific and greatly enhance the image. Fantastic lighting...I would say backlighting but you said there is a black backdrop behind. The frost really reflects the light, though. Great job on this, Brian!!! #3975462

Thanks so much, Katarina, Corinne, Janine, Mary, Datha, and Melissa!! I'm really happy with the way this turned out, and your comments very motivating! (No backlight, Melissa...but I did adj. the highlights and contrast to enhance the frost edges.) #3975677

Once in a while old Jack Frost leaves his artwork displayed for extended hours through the day.
We had several days of freezing fog and frost, and I shot these Oregon Grape leaves at that time.
I placed a black backdrop behind the plant for this macro, then used a number of filters
for this final composition. I applied a brown photo filter tint in El 5.0, increased the
red mid-tone, and then posterized the image. I also applied a slight salmon
colored diffuse glow, and a bad dream plug-in filter to the final comp.
