FORMULA CODE - DFFVTYC
We've always loved this image from @jason.bates.photography! The mist at the top of the picture combined with the green in the center and the reflection at the bottom makes it easy prey for a little bit of enhancement in Mextures. Here I started out with one of my favorite light leaks, Ashes. This provides a burst of warm light that I shift over to the top left corner. The Forestry overlay from Landscape Enhance gives me a touch of green to add to the mix while Taffy from Vintage Gradients lightens up Jason's image from the center outwards. The picture is so pristine in its original format so I decided to give it just a bit of a rough edge with the Daub overlay from Dust and Dirt. To give the image a few more flashes of gold I put Ectype from Anomaly into play. When I enter the adjustments section I'm really just looking to pull all of the tones and colors together. After applying the F-ASTIA film preset I make a few tweaks here and there and voila!
