Fall foliage can sometimes be hard to predict. Leaves don’t consistently change color at the same time of year, and sometimes even just a few miles of distance can be the difference between green and orange.

Fortunately, there are a bunch of trackers today that help with this sort of thing. But sometimes your schedules aren’t flexible.

Fortunately (again), you can sometimes fix this kinda thing in post. I wouldn’t recommend banking on this approach, but in a pinch, it’s amazing to see what’s possible with a bit of retouching and a lot of will.
