Bluebells and Birches

Bluebells and Birches

DescriptionUmpteenth time lucky.  The bluebells are right at their tail end, and we had one day where the wind and rain held off for a couple of hours at a time.  I headed over to this part of Bayhurst with a range of kit explicitly to get this area.  I managed to spend a good couple of hours here, but even minimal wind had the bluebells nodding, so this is the only focus stacked image which worked, and none of the HD shots did.  But we have a dark path, we have light on the bluebells and we have a twisted birch trunk too.  Lots of different post processing experimented with here, because everything I did upset one of the elements, so lots of effect masking going on.  Hopefully it works, but this I think can be improved on.
