  • Did you add the raindrops in post? Or did you capture this whilst rain was falling onto the wood? Jan 18 at 8:23

    No, those are real drops. I don't do that kind of post-processing. Just stood on the deck and pointed the camera down.

  • Are those fireworks in the background? Jan 17 at 16:08
  • @spikey_richie Yes. The Danes start their fireworks early, the photo was taken around 10 pm. There was much more activity after midnight.

Tree-way

Tree-way

Derbyshire, UK, June 2021.

Walking through the woods I came across a huge area of felled trees, cut and laid out waiting to be taken away. Batches were marked with the name (I guess) of the buyer. The orange paint was barely visible in the colour original, but with all sorts of manipulation in PhotoScape-X I was able to bring out the text which also highlighted all the rings and saw marks in the wood.
