Using Lightroom 5 I set out to bring an alluring magical quality to the image, and really enchant the season of Autumn.
Using Lightroom I worked on creating a warm environment, sorting out the white balance and shadow and highlight levels. To create the unworldly aura, most of the editing was using dodge and burn brushes, along with some saturation and clarity brushes to make the scene pop.
I think I concluded with the image when I started changing it into black and white, realizing I much prefer the power of the color version, I stuck with it.
