Filtered light to filter effects can add interest to your photos here are 3 recent examples.
Nik software Viveza 2 was used to highlight the light crawling through the green foliage and to bring out the colors in the tall reeds. Color Efex Pro filter was used to add a slight glow to the background.
The bare oak tree  was first highlighted using the Duplex filter and then applying the darken lighten center filter in Color Efex Pro.
In this photo I used Viveza 2 to bring out the reflections in the water.
