help with this one?
May 25, 2011

I'm working to improve my nascent PP skills (primarily in Lightroom - I have Photoshop CS5 but am still working up the courage to dive in and learn it). In trying to make this image match what I saw on that morning, I've mostly lowered exposure of the window area of the arch and sky above it, while increasing exposure of the arch and foreground, plus increasing clarity (primarily in the background). At 100% you'll see some effects of my clumsy local adjustments (e.g., around the bluff areas) and I'm not sure if the blue line across the top of the arch (where it meets the sky) is chromatic aberration (which I adjusted the best I could) or the way I selected areas for adjustment.

What would you do with this to help make it wall-worthy? I would love to see examples of what could be done to really help it look its best. Any examples and/or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Jared
