I’ve tried this type of image before, taking the picture straight up through the branches. It’s easier with the twin lens reflex which acts like a periscope, but these ones take with the Nikon D90 came out OK and benefited from some Lightroom presets. I kept them in straight black and white for a while but then decided that the selenium finish improved the mood a bit. The selenium tone preset is very exaggerated compared to the paper/emulsion way of doing things. I might experiment for a more subtle version.

Anyway, I thought the leaves looked like bats taking flight and it was taken shortly after halloween. I think I prefer the one above but I have included a slightly different version…
