Path In The Park
This is another one from Meadowlark Gardens. This one is one of the little side paths that cut through smaller gardens within the larger park.
Meadowlark Gardens has a lot of side trails all over the park. It’s just a matter of looking for them. While this one was very obvious there are some not obvious trails. They take you through some deeper woods or fields that would appear inaccessible without them. The way you know how they are official trails is that they will have small signs posted explaining some of the flora or a sign asking you not to walk off the trail.
I wanted to give the image a feeling of more shadows than was really there. Went for a lower key image and used Aurora 2017 for the overall image adjustments. Once I was happy with the overall look I started to play with the HDR settings until happy. Then back into Photoshop for some dodging and burning and called it done.
