Collage of the Week: Leaf Pile
This past weekend we were working on getting the yard raked and ready for winter and of course my daughter had to take advantage of the leaf piles we were creating. She and a friend spent quite a bit of time playing in the leaves and happily posing for photos which I took with my point & shoot Canon S95. Even though I shot the photos in RAW they are never quite as nice as when I use my DSLR. As I was going through them I applied some presets in Lightroom 4 to get the more flat “autumn” look – I believe I used the “Brannan” preset from the Instagram collection. I really like the end result and one of the photos from the set (not pictured here) ended being the one I chose for my Christmas card.
