    Sunset at Double Arch, Arches NP

    Waited 2 hours tonight for sunset and wow did it ever show up in all it's glory. This was a unique look at Double Arch. I was the only one there at the time, everyone else left. Patience is essential. No HDR necessary

    This is such a beautiful image that I almost find it embarrassing that I photoshopped it. Here it is anyway:
    Sunset at Double Arch, Arches NP
    -usm 1px 50%
    -usm 10px 15%
    -vignette using curveTools luminance curve photoshop action
    -slightly brighten dark areas with color selection and curves
    -selectively add contrast with color selection and curves

    It was well worth the 2 hour wait

    I have not had a chance to work with any of the images. You brought out more of the texture of the rocks. I was trying to capture the color of the rocks at that time of the day. Changes the mood. But adds something different.

    It's a magnificent image. That's mainly because it's an image of something magnificent. I think that the original is probably right - there's no real need to cook it any more. To me 90% of landscape photography seems dull and repetitive compared to views like this.
