Salton Sea, Southern CA, Kodak DC280 Digital.


You can see the original exposure here:




Most of the changes were created using the dodge and burn brush. I

burned out the sky leaving the clouds, and also dodged the clouds

themselves so they would become brighter. Then I burned totally all

of the detals on the side of the "house", and burned the

water a little. I dodged the sand, to make it a little brighter.

Then I burned the shadows on the sand. The "Fog" on the

horizon line is just a part of the background clouds/haze which I

didn't burn, but left as it was.

I must say, you have photoshopped this pic to death. My humble advice is to go back to the start and think of how you can take the straight shot in a more interesting way (lighting, composition) and then possibly "enhance" it in photoshop or at least take your time and really plan it out.

Very special work. Really, photoshop issue doesn't matter for me in this case. It

takes the viewer to another world.

This photograph does what I look for in an image. Draws me in, doesn't give me everything at once, leaves me in question, and it's beautiful.
