365/112 ~ Spring ~

I am always just a little bit excited when I see the first leaves pop out on our huge Pecan tree.  Here is what I saw yesterday...


I edited this photo using Picnik.  I brightened the exposure a bit, then boosted the color just a touch.  Then I made it black and white all over except for the leaves.  The last touch up was using the "lomoish" button and museum matte framing. 

Here is the original shot...

  2. Great edit! We have a pecan tree and would it surprise you if I told you half of it has died and no longer bears leaves or pecans???
