Over or Under – You Be the Judge

  “Walking the road this morning, I came upon this little apple tree.  Unless you spray them with some deadly poison, apple trees and apples are going to get feasted on by bugs.  Does not make for the nicest of pics – but it is reality. Trying not to make the photo too “unrealistic,” using Photoshop, I popped the color just a tad and cloned out some of the worst spots.  Should I have left nature as it was or enhanced the photo more??  OR just kept walking? ;)”

  • I like the composition and the processing looks good, the only thing I’d try is returning to that spot during a different time of the day to eliminate the shadow of the branch on the apple as well as the bright reflection that washes out the color a bit. You could even try that same subject from different angles to see if you could eliminate the shadow that way. Nice work.

    • Good suggestions, John. Thank you. Will do exactly that – maybe tomorrow if we have sunshine!
