Even though the shots were disappointing, I decided to do what I could with them in post processing. In the first couple of shots below I modified both their contrast and sharpness to produce images that look like pseudo-HDR, even though they actually represented a single, unblended shot.
I converted the next couple of shots to black & whites and then, not satisfied with that look, selectively brightened what the camera had recorded as green.
As I said, I stopped at the Oldenburg horse farm in western Mequon on my way back. Again, conditions simply weren't as good as they had been in the fall when conditions had included a dense fog to provide depth to the shots. Because I was disappointed with conditions, I again fooled around with the images in post processing.
In this first shot, that I converted to black & white, I again selectively brightened the green shades to create the following somewhat surreal image.
Weird and almost with the appearance of infrared photography.
Here is a second shot, which included in the foreground a grass field in which the dandelions were in full bloom. In this case I darkened, rather than lightened, the green but lightened the yellow (dandelions), creating a polka dot effect in the foreground.
I'm not sure I like the foreground effect, but I do like how the false shading of the colors affected the woods in the background.
Just trying to make the best of a less than ideal situation.
