Through the trees

I have this habit of trying to photograph the Sunlight through the trees or in other words called as Komorebi. ( Komorebi is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.”) During our trek in Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Munnar, Kerala, India, where the sun was at its high at 9 am, I tried that and it didn’t come out as well as it did in another komorebi shot. I couldn’t see the outcome of the photograph well with the sun on my face and I didn’t want to slow down and try again because my friend was almost half cooked by then. But when I used that not-quite-good photograph and applied some effects from Photo Mania, this is what I got.


And I kind of liked the outcome and the way the effect went well with the photograph.

And oh! here is the original

    I love most the original. But they are both awesome images. Done that too; haven’t been that lucky yet.

    Love it. And I learnt a new word, too (one which describes an effect I’ve achieved several times, so I shall describe it correctly in future, thanks).

    Fantastic, and like Dale, I too learned a new word whih is always a good thing! The reworked (first) shot has a great nostalgic feel to it. It’s as if someone were looking out a window reminiscing a distant past.

      🙂 Thank you, K’lee. Yeah, the nostalgic feeling was the reason I liked it too.

    Thanks for the new vocabulary, Kundhavai. Is there a word for sunlight shining through the clouds? I agree your first shot has a nostalgic feeling to it, but I like the original, too. Well done!

      Thank you, Sue 🙂 I haven’t come across such word so far. Will keep an ear to the ground.
