weekly photo challenge: transition

The sprouting grass waiting for spring,
and the grass that begins to wither, were once the same
wild grass of the moor.
Sooner or later
they surely meet with autumn
and end in the season of weariness.

weekly photo challenge: trio

Last autumn

The three of us tossed acorns

To the scattering carp.

Now in the cold morning wind off the pond

He and I stand hand in chilling hand.

I began creating this variation of Ben’s image by merging his dng files in HDR Efex Pro. I then did a bit of touch up in Aperture (yes, I’m in mourning over Apple’s decision to stop Aperture development) before exploring various layers in Perfect Effects 9.
