MMX: Burning Ivy

This was taken on a visit to the National Trust property at Canons Ashby in the autumn of 2010. The ivy on the front of the building had turned a gorgeous red and gave me the impression that the whole of the wall was on fire, with the flames licking around the window.
I have done several versions of this image, and in fact the one in my book ‘MMX’ is not quite so strident as this. This time, I wanted to try and bring out the fierce colour of the ivy even more, so I put it through Nik Color Efex Pro’s tonal contrast which increased the vibrancy and then enhanced the light in the area around the window.
