More “fall colors” from Montreal. Normally, the colors of the “fall foliage” are yellow and gold and on rare occasion you find the tree with bright red, “burning” colors. I spotted this tree couple of day prior to the day I took this shot and I waited for good weather with favorable light. When I saw bright sky with the white clouds that served as natural light diffuser, I knew it was my day.
I composited the shot to make red colors of the tree and fallen leaves on the ground the main elements of the composition and then I waited for 15-20min for rowers to pass by.
When I was processing the image in Photoshop I realized that small tree in the foreground was the real destruction and I had to use Stamp Tool to co cover/erase it. At the very end of the processing I decided to flip the image horizontally. I thought that rawers moving from left to right would improve the composition and make it more natural.
