Indian Summer

Playing. I bought Color Efex Pro3. This is the Indian Summer filter applied to an image taken in Maine last September. What do you think? Baby steps into this new plug in. Lots to learn!

I like this. The color is deep and rich and reminds me of fall. It all starts with a good capture, and this one has very nice back-lighting, so the hairs stand out as a feature. If I may ask, how much did the setting change the original image? If I remember correctly, there are settings you can play with, too, once you choose a filter?

@karla: Thanks, Karla, for the nice comments. If you go to my portfolio of August 31, you will see the original. I have a lot to learn about this new plug in. I did not change settings on this one, but I know you can. A new learning curve!

This is pretty impressive, but of course the image has to be good to start with!

Finally got back to look at your Aug 31 original image. I like that one, and I like what you did with it. Have fun with that plug-in! Looks like a program I might want to try, too.
