No long stories today, just the final image, the processed original …and a few words.
I wouldn’t have believed how much different the image would look when taken from different angles. I took quite a few versions of the balls and just once tilted the camera in such a way that the perspective became slightly distorted. That is the photo you can see here as that perspective has become my favourite.
I used kk_breathe preset (provided by Kim Klassen in her Be still 52 course) in processing the final image in Lightroom and tweaked it a bit to suit the photo better.
