    On the road in India

    On the road in India

    This was last year in India. It was on the road from Bangalore (or Bangaluru) to Mysore, taken through the windshield of a van. I'm going back through some files, now that I know something more about post-processing (and have upgraded to CS4).

    Any comments/suggestions are welcome.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Rick,

    The tone of the foliage is so strong that nothing else in the photograph can compete with it. If you can bring out some of the shadows of the rock formation or the clouds you could probably do something more with the image. The technique (shooting while in a moving vehicle) is flawless.

    Interesting rock formation. A bit more contrast would help.

    Thanks, Shadowman.

    I went back to PS, blurred the foliage, and selectively brought up the far distance and sky. I don't have enough levels in the rocks to really bring up the shadows, but now it better shows the subject, which to me is the echo of the shape of the cloud and rock.

    Thanks for the ideas/advice.

    Cheers,
