A relatively unknown gorge in the French Jura which is also quite difficult to get into due to the lack of footpaths. I ended up wading about 2km along the river to get to this spot…

I needed to do a fair bit of work on this in post to get a balanced exposure so I thought I'd add the unprocessed file as a version for comparison.

Green light, green shadows. The colour of magic, the other. This has quite an extraordinary feel, a very personal landscape, a private place.

It looks great in a darkened room but just a bit more light would show the lovely quiet water flowing through the grassy river bed.
Hard work wading so far on a river bed producing a good result.

Thanks, Doug. Yes, I suppose I could lighten it a wee tad but what Moira picked up on in her comment was exactly what I was going for. It's the dark look of the shot that gives it atmosphere. Compare the finished result with the raw file and you'll see what I mean...

I tend to agree with Moira. The dark toning gives the image atmosphere and the color a richness that might be lost if the shadows were lightened. I admire your tenacity in getting the shot Julian.

Super processing after a heroic journey. Did you take the Argonauts with you?

Beautiful image and beautiful work done to capture and process it.

I've got to the stage where I'll get up at 4am- trek for miles with a tripod to get a shot, but unfortunately still don't understand how to do a proper conversion like this.
But thanks for showing the before and after- it demonstrates how much this part is the most important.
