October in North Carolina Adding Color

Since the weather varies from 65 to 85, our leaves stay pretty green. I wanted to make this photo more interesting so I added color to the trees in the background. Go to enhance, scroll to Adjust Color, and click Color Variations. I tried to choose very small areas and individual leaves for a more realistic effect. If you go to big it may come out looking like a clor blob on your trees. I made these changes to the original photo first. I then converted it to sepia & changed the opacity unil I felt the trees were blending but I could still see the fun purples, blues, reds and yellows I added.
