  1. bonneville salt flat.jpg There are no rules as to how you apply your post processing to this image; but, please let us know what you have done so we can all learn.
    If you would like to post a candidate image next week, please ensure it is of sufficiently high resolution for manipulation by the participants (3000px on the long side, 300dpi for example).


    The photo is of the Bonneville Salt Flat, Utah

  3. I adjusted the clarity, texture, temp, exposure, black point and white point in Lightroom, some globally, some with an adjustment brush, and some with gradients. Then I modified the site's amenities a bit in Photoshop.

  10. And you're doing things I can't figure out how to do!
    The cool thing is that it was the Post Processing Challenge thread several years ago that originally motivated me to learn how to do post processing--in fact, it was several of the challenges that you posted back then that got me started--thanks!
     
  11. Thanx for posting, Glenn.

    Hoping to get some tag-along publicity, Peru showcases the Moquegua Sal y Pimiento (Salt&Pepper) Flats.
    This is not worthy of mentioning the steps taken in its' formation.
