The lens was Canon 16-35 f/2.8L II and I was lying on the ground under the swing (it’s a pretty high swing). I sat on this image for a while not knowing how the process it. I shot it with a color image in mind but just couldn’t make it work the way I wanted. After a while I realized that the tree (the “magic tree” as the kids call it) would work great in black and white if I could separate it from the background so I processed it with the tree and my daughter having much more contrast than the surrounding trees above.
