    My husband put a new bulb in our spotlights that light up our humongous silver leaf maple in the backyard a few nights ago. When they turned on, I noticed a weird shadow on the tree and looked out. My bleeding heart plant was coming up right next to the light and it just looked too cool not to grab the camera and snap a few. I was struggling with how to play with it in LR, but came out with this. Not too shabby for a quick couple of snaps. I had my Minolta 35-70 on my camera at the time.

    May I ask how you treated it in Lightroom please? For instance, did you need to address any background distractions?

    Cheers

    Actually I just played with some presets in LR and then brought it into Photoshop to get rid of some of the background noise. There were areas of other plants showing up on the left hand side of the picture that I painted over in black. I'm not too familiar with either LR or PS, so I just kept it basic.
