Hey Guys,

This is a photo in Zion that I took that I REALLY want to like. I just don't feel like the colors are coming out properly though. They are way too muted and I cannot figure out how to fix it. Anyone want to take a stab?

James

James,
here's my shot at enhancing the image. I also like it a lot but it seems to cry out for "over-processing" to emphasize the textures and colors. Anyway, hope you like it.

Hey Jim,

Thanks for taking a crack at it for me. I agree with you that unfortunately it appears to cry for heavy processing. I don't like the look with it so completely saturated. Would you want to take a stab with the RAW image?

On another note, Roman, I am sending it to you now via Send This File.. Just a warning - it is a very big file 27.4 MB RAW.

I agree with Roman that it would be better to start from the original raw image. However, here is a stab at the low res web version.

Thanks, George. Yours is more in line with where I was trying to go. Want the RAW file? For that matter, anyone who wants the RAW file to take a look at, please feel free to post it here or send me a PM.

James,

Great composition. I know exactly where that is under weeping rock. I was standing right there and really struggled to find a composition I liked that included that peak - I think you found it.

I would appreciate if I could give a shot at your file..

Look familiar James? [Re: James Morrissey] #27343

What a difference the seasons can make. Here is an image of the same area taken in August of '05. It was hot and there was only drips of water "weeping" from the rock. After looking at your image I think I should go back in the fall after some rain and do a reshoot.
