Day #97 @ Photography Project 365

Spring is definitely setting in and I tried to capture its essence in this shot - from my apartment. I took an almost identically composed shot in the earlier part of this year when it was still winter. The dark bark of the tree against the bright walkway is still as captivating now as it was back then. Additionally this time, we have the blossoming flowers of spring, which gives the shot a more cheerful and pleasant setting.

In Lightroom, I increased the exposure to almost wash out the otherwise grayish walkway. I also increased the blacks to give the tree a dark tone that I wanted. Finally, I increased contrast further by adjusting its histogram curve to be more S-shaped.
