I took and post-processed myself the entire set of photos.

Today I will continue in my initiative, the #autumnends contest. If you would like to know more about, look at the bottom of the article. But, one moment: with my post I join in the #behindthephoto contest. Behind the Photo is a photography competition launched by @nelyp and @johan.norberg that reached the 2nd edition.
This Time I will utilize a photo I took in the last months. It was a good day to walk in the wood, so I decided to take my scooter and go above Castelpoggio. After the village, I started a descent road and I stopped in the first kilometers. It was morning, not so early.
I walked along the road and I found a little passage to climb into the woods. I used the word climb not in a random time: the zone was a classical mountain area and the wood extended over sloping ground.
After a long time, I started a path and I followed it for many minutes. And...incredible, I saw this.
A leaf hung in midair. As I approached, I noticed a very thin thread woven by a spider that allowed it to remain still. The only exception was caused by the wind: when it blew, the leaf slowly turned on itself.
I decided to photograph this particular subject with my smartphone and share it later. I never expected to find something like that. Cobwebs yes, leaves too. But a leaf suspended in the middle of the path, on a background illuminated in the right place; really a pleasant surprise.
More photos? Not this time! So, I would like to watch you what I usually do with my photo: create multiple covers on its basis.
The first cover I created this time is a common black and white. Not too accentuated but not too little.
The second step of my process is another black and white cover, this time more accentuated. I added simple adjustment levels to contrast more the entire image, reaching a middle point between the basic black and white and a low-key effect. Then I increased the lights and obtained the final result.
The third step: this period of the year is the transition to the winter season, in my zones. So, I created a theme-effect that could be the representative of this crossing. I called this Snow Effect.
For my #behindthephoto contest is all. I hope you enjoy my post.
