One Image: Two Iterations

I shot this on my way to work.  This is what I typically would consider a good rendition. Strong blacks, weak highlights, pointillistic color.

In Lightroom, I used the low contrast option, making this a very different image -- it becomes more about the floating spray of yellow forsythia and less about the woods, which become almost translucent.  (The orange blurry things in the foreground of both images are weeds that were much closer to the camera.  The woods in the photo were about 30 yards from where I was standing; the weeds about 3 yards.   I usually try to shoot so weeds at the side of the road aren't in the photo, but I kinda like them here.)
