This photo was taken in Paris France, on Champs-ElysÃ©e in November of 2009 while on vacation there with my girlfriend. Leaves were falling from the trees and her and I both had our cameras out and were taking photos of the leaves falling, trying to get some good ones. Eventually I ended up with this one, which I rather liked. The sky in the background, and the tree was very very dark so I just exaggerated it in Lightroom by using a desaturation brush. I thought it worked out nicely.
