A tree on the shore of Lake Ontario in Mississauga.

I thought it would be cool to do a bit of a series with trees (just a two-parter though). I didn’t actually take either shot intending to do a series, but while doing my post work I saw that I had an opportunity. This image is actually more heavily-processed than yesterday’s. I took the shot with the sky overexposed and brought down the highlights a lot, which is why the branches really pop out. I originally posted a much brighter version of this image, but I found that bringing down the exposure and the brightness really helped make it look much richer, though I lost a bit of shadow detail.
