Aspen Triptych

Fine art photographs of the aspen forest, Cuchara Mountain Park, November 2021. Photos captured with Sony a6500 and 18-105 f/4 G lens and processed using B&W Artisan Pro X panel and building on my previous aspen photo. I started work on the photo of the single twisted aspen intending for it to be a black and white photograph. But after finishing the first draft, I compared the monochrome to the original color photo, and was struck by the deep muted tones of the scrub pine and dormant ferns and grasses that were absent from the black and white image. The final processed black and white image was colorized with the original color photo. With some additional Van Dyke brown split toning, the mood was perfect. This set of three images were individually processed in black and white, then re-colored, toned, and adjusted to a similar aesthetic.
