i'm melting

The sun almost melted all the ice before I could grab a couple shots. I found this scene on KU's west campus over lunchtime. Capturing the glistening ice as it appears to your eye is more difficult than I expected. I decided to try the split toning feature in Adobe Lightroom. I like the effect, but it produces some funky banding in dark areas of the sky. I finished it up in photoshop with a blurred layer set to multiply. That helped take some of the hard edges out of the icy branches. Forecast calls for snow this weekend. I'm not holding my breath.
