The weak spring sunshine, low in the sky late one afternoon, seemed to touch the pussy willow by Saltaire's New Mill with a sprinkling of gold. (April Fool's Gold perhaps?)
I have played up the effect a bit in Photoshop, thinking the photo lent itself to a bit of 'antiquing'. I'm trying to teach myself how to use textures and blending modes. I'm making slow progress but it's fun. I'm wondering now if I should have cropped this a bit more, to get rid of some of the sky and reflection on the left that is too bright.... but I still quite like the image.
