Dancing trees ballet...

This was somewhat of a challenging exercise in multiple effects using various NIK tools.  I took this photo into HDR Efex Pro tone mapping, since it was only a single image, and made several slider adjustments until it was to my liking.  Then, in Photoshop CS5, I again used some NIK magic in the form of the "monday morning" and "glamour glow" effects. Once done there, I used NIK Silver EFX Pro 2 to convert it all to black and white and toned it.  I finished it off using NIK's sharpener, just brushing in the sharpening in selected areas.  This McIntosh Reserve swampy area is one I visit frequently to find moody, dramatic scenes to photograph.
