Autumn Contrast (4)
Synevja (24)
This was a shot taken within a nature reserve in the city of Red Deer.
The beavers had chewed down this tree and the stump has been weathered over the years. A sharp contrast to the autumn colours in the rest of the photography.

I did some editing to enhance the colours in the background. It was taken on a sunny day around 1 pm.

My goal with this shot was to emphasize the contrast between the colours and the non colour but textureof the stump.

Hi Syn
I lightened the shadows to soften the harsh light on the left side of the stump. It seems to bring out more detail on the right side of the stump. I hope you like the different view of your image.
