This weekend we took a leaf-peeping drive outside of Fort Collins. At the top of Rist Canyon I took this straightforward but pretty image of golden Aspen leaves, and this became my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. Using the Velvia emulation was a no-brainer. After that I increased contrast and texture. I brushed over the sky and reduced the exposure by half a stop. A little bit of sharpening and the image was complete.
WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
