It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen" to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

Original photo

This photo is straight out of the camera. It was an overcast day in May. I love Autumn so I wanted to create light where there was none.

Illumination

First I applied NIK COLOR EFEX PRO filters; Indian Summer and Glamour Glow to transform the foliage to Autumn. I then darkened the image and made many tweaks and layers... lightening the background and created the light beams with Obsidian Dawn brushes. I hope you like the result!
