Reading the Palm – ProjectEdit365 – 24 July

I loved these palm leaves. I’m so glad I ended up getting a fairly close up of one. I’m pretty sure I knew I wanted to go black and white when I snapped the shot. I tried cropping to have the midrib extend from the bottom right corner, but it took too much off of the leaf, so I left it as is. It still shows movement across the photo. I changed the photo to black and white and then increased the contrast and clarity. I adjusted the highlights, shadows, whites, and blacks to get a look I liked, then I moved on to the individual colors. I adjusted those to achieve a look I liked. Finally I sharpened the whole picture and reduced the noise just a bit. Here’s the original:
