Peak Season by tourofnature Peak Season by tourofnature
The rugged mountains of Lincoln County, Wyoming. I drove through this canyon near the peak of the wildflower season, we had just traveled through the storm earlier in the day.

Trying out some new post-processing using some tricks ~parkflavor showed me. What do you think? Critiques welcomed...

Canon 5D. 17-40 L. CPL. 2SS GND filter.

Lincoln County, Wyoming.

Thanks dude, what do you think of the processing? Overdone?

I think the exposure is really nicely balanced, the composition and colours are good and there's some nice drama in the sky. It also has slightly more 'richness' than usual perhaps, which is also a good thing. What are you doing differently, getting to grips with the Lum masks? If so I would suggest grabbing the light lights and pulling those back just a touch, predominantly in the lower half of the frame as there is a slightly jarring 'glare' to those greens in that patch between the foreground and midground. Just tried that and it looks pretty good I reckon. But overall looking nice my man!

That makes sense, and yes I've been using the Lum masks and adding a curves layer. I'm trying to add the step to my workflow and have been happy with the results so far. I'll try to bring those highlight back just a bit when I get home. Hougaard has a pretty good tutorial online using them for different techniques, although I haven't found the time to understand them yet.

mate they're a real mindjob to get to grips with at first, just read and re-read the tutorials on his site and have a look at Hougaard's as well, keep practicing and you'll get it... personally it took me many months to be fully comfortable with them but these days I couldn't live without them, they're an integral part of my workflow and I love em :D
