This section of rock was next to Skalkaho Falls and stood out from everything around it with its texture, saturation and color. It had been raining and the rock really jumped out at me. I was trying to capture the deep rich colors that looked so impressive at the time. I exposed almost two stops to the right and then brought it back in Lightroom.
Posted By mrswoolybill : I cropped, reduced brightness and increased contrast, boosted midtones in Levels and then applied the Burn tool (set to shadows, 4% exposure, large brush size) over the whole frame a couple of times. For me this takes us in, and also a more tactile sense .
