Portraying trees is something of a struggle for me. Because I love pictures of trees. And when I see other people’s photos of them I always think they do it so much better. Also the digital sensor is just not meant for capturing nature.
Here’s two pictures of the same scene. It was captured during an ongoing sunset leaving the trees all highlighted and the foreground and Marcus covered in shadow. This mixed with the heavily saturated leaves that where literally burning in the sky. It’s so hard for me to turn this view into something realistic and true without making it look surreal. That’s why I shared both of them. One is a little more tampered with and the other is basically straight from the sensor.
