We are in week two of the One Four Challenge hosted by Robyn Gosby at Captivate Me. This photography challenge is about processing one image in four different ways over four weeks.
My goal this week is to bring out details in my image, taken on a grim morning at Banyule Flats, a beautiful wetland in inner Melbourne. I want to reveal cloud patterns reflected in the billabong, emphasise those dead red gum trees standing like ghosts in the water.

To do so, starting from my Week 1 edit, I used the Nik Color Efex plug-in and selected the Tonal Contrast pre-set, then tweaked the brightness, contrast and structure sliders till I was happy with the effect. Here is the result:
Just as a reminder, here is the progression from the original to this week’s edit:
