I'll start the ball rolling. This was the main shot I wanted to get. I took this from downstream, right in the center of the creek. I used seven original raw files, converted them to tiff, made an HDRI in Photomatix, and hated it. I wound up taking four images, and starting with the darkest image, hand painted on a mask, the elements I wanted from each file, slowly bringing up the luminance, expanding the dynamic range, and saturation. Once I had all the elements I wanted in the picture, I used a curve to stretch the data even further, and used *a/*b channel stepping in lab color mode on a copy of the file, to enhance saturation. Then used the same hand painting on a mask to add saturation where desired. All in all, a slow process, but not too bad - about 40 minutes. Oh, and of course, I sharpened a few times with the TLR scripts!

WOW! Jay, that one whacks you upside the head. My wife really likes the lines in yours. She says it could be a postcard.

Yeah, but look at the difference a good CP makes. It has a totally different look - more earthy than aquatic.

Yeah the CP works wonders. The water looks way deeper in your shot though which is really cool.

John going for the Crane that just landed I believe
