Olympic National Park Stream
For many years I walked past this location in the Hoh Rainforest deep in the Olympic National Park, WA. I always thought it to be too cluttered to make an interesting image.
This time the light was perfect and I imagined this processed using the “Orton” effect. I actually ended up using the Glamor Glow filter in Nik Software’s Color Efex Pro.
The recent rain made the greens extra vibrant. Little processing was used here, other than Glamor Glow, to create the mysterious looking image.
