    Montana Landscape

    Stillwater River (!), Beartooth Mountains, South Central Montana, USA.
    Original and "massaged" images.
    PS CS4 tone, color and sharpness corrections plus BUZZ Simplifier plug-in for painterly effect.

    Amazing what the post-processing can do. How long did the manipulations take?

    joec:

    I spent about 10 minutes making corrections, but after working in PS for 20 years I have a lot of experience to efficiently resolve most problems.

    On this image it was easy to reveal shadow detail: (Image menu > Adjustments > Shadow / Highlights).

    I used various selection tools to carefully select the highlights (water and sky areas) and then copied those selections to a new layer. I set the Blending Mode for the new layer to Multiply, which I've found works wonders for pumping up even minimal highlight detail.

    Nice work Lars. I do like the painterly effect and use it frequently.
