    Lets Play 5-19-2018 - Factory Butte

    This image would have possibilities with a more colorful sky. As it is, the color on the butte only lasted 30 seconds or so. But this is a good candidate for post processing. Easy DR, but you can change the luminance values and colors to taste.

    Read more about this resource...
    Here is a SOOC jpg to show what it looks like, but be sure to download the larger DNG files in the link for editing.

    OK, went a little crazy with this (otherwise, what's the fun in playing?!). I replaced the sky with a sunset from about the same direction and tweaked the foreground to try picking up that color. Erased some tracks in the foreground as well.

    Here is mine, with Kyle as my inspiration this is what I came up with. The sky is Ben's original, I just warmed up the whole image, added some contrast to the whole image, and then a bit of Saturation to the sky.

    Ok, fun time! Here's my version, with a liberal application of haze removal tool, a crop, selective burning & dodging, sharpening, and light slider adjustments. All in an attempt to keep it pretty natural.

    Ok, here is mine, I had this finished before the contest started so it is not influenced by the other entries. However, if I were to print it, I would take another look.

    That's nice Ben. It would be interesting to see how you might process it differently after seeing other people's work. I know I can't help peeking at the work here by the others and then adjusting mine accordingly when I edit.

    I would wait until the voting is done. I don't wish to influence the voting.
