A Hidden Gem

The shot:

A solitary acorn hiding amongst the colorful leaves of a tree in our front yard


The effect:

I used a "posterize" filter embedded within Photoshop Elements 5.0 to remove some of the detail and to focus on the primary colors within the medley


The result:

An image that I consider to be part photo and part artwork


Some people don't like to see any adjustments on a photo after it is taken, but I feel that limits the creative side of our brain from experimentation after the shutter is deployed....
