Let’s kick off the 2014 Fall campaign with this colorful photo. I took it 2 years ago in Montreal.
I know, it would be much better to start with the photo taken in 2015. Unfortunately, I have no fall photos so far. It is 2an of October and everything is still pretty much green around Montreal. I am still waiting for better colors.
I still have no feel what color to expect. Every year is different. Last year, the fall season was short with pale, unimpressive colors. I hardly have any interesting photos from fall of 2014.
I am hoping for better luck this year.

Shooting & Processing
I took 3 bracketed shots on a tripod (-1, 0, +1) as I usually do, but I used only middle exposure for editing.
I used single RAW image editing in Lightroom. I described the process in Introduction to Lightroom Rapid Editing System.
This is the first photo on this blog with was edited using my brand new Fall Colors Lightroom Preset Collection.
