While visiting my family in Grand Junction, Colorado, we happened to be walking downtown one day, and stopped at a coffee shop in this short "alley." There was this one tree that had most of it's leaves left, and they were this beautiful color of red. I had been wanting to do a photomanipulation shot like this where I get rid of all the color except the one that really stands out to further push it into the limelight, and I think I succeeeded with this shot.
Photoshop and a lot of mouse work to make sure all I put in color were the leaves. A bit of other touch-ups, but not much in the realm of color...the leaves were brilliant all by themselves.
