Maggie in Leaves
full size image (92K) available.
This was taken in my front yard with Kodak Royal Gold 100 on a very overcast day.
I exposed for Maggie, whose brightness variations actually exceeds the latatude of the
film. You can see a small "burned" spot of white, and a featureless spot of black as well.
This exposure did not do well for the leaves, which came out a uniform brown/gray. The
leaves were not very good looking to begin with--Dallas is not known for its fall colors.
I created the vibrant Autumn gold and red leaves in Photoshop. Specifically, I masked off the
dog, which was already the way I wanted it to look, and on the rest I altered the magenta hue
(to turn brown into gold), and increased the saturation. Then I altered the green to undo the
brightness change to the grass.
