Zabriske Velvia-look (G1/14-45)

Yeah, I know it is an "equipment forum" but I figured I'd share a photo to placate the "don't you people take photos" types

Actually taken a year ago at Zabriske Point in Death Valley, but just got around to trying to process it as I sorted through images I didn't like on my first pass way back when.

G1 with the 14-45 kit lens, the very first m43 product is still darn good for most things!

Processed in Lightroom, sky darkened by about half a stop and the very front foreground brightened about half a stop. Contrast and color dialed up pretty high to vaguely mimic what good old Velvia chromes look like. I usually don't push color this much, but felt like doing something a bit more "punchy" possibly to the point of over doing it!

Comments welcome, even negative ones ("try to avoid the saturation nuclear option in the future").
