Into a Postcard
May 18, 2012.
I walked the Georgian Trail at Craigleith this morning to take photos of the lilac stands that line the trail. I was drawn to the sight of this bike propped on the bench while the owner explored the lilacs. It looked like a postcard, so that was my starting point in processing the photo. After basic adjustments in Lightroom 4, I used the pastel preset in Nik's Color Efex Pro 4 plugin, added a lightened vignette, and finally a subtle border.
