Hello everyone, I took this photo under smoldering sun in Calico, Nevada. I did my best in Photoshop but I was reading in a previous post about EC ? and ACR and ways of improving the photos in RAW, something about working with contrast at zero instead of the default 25 etc. I only have one exposure to work with. Please fell free to rework the image and if you prefer I would post the color one.

Thanks,


Andres

If you could post a link to the raw file, it would be interesting to workup.

It's been a while since we've had a "give this a go in post processing" thread.

Thanks Tim, pardon my ignorance but I only post on websites like this one, or Fred Miranda's site. Do I need to have my own web page in order to have a direct link to a RAW file?

No, your image is stored at pbase.com, so it has to be something there.

If you want the exact image you uploaded to pbase to show, and any dimension is greater than 800, your link has to end in "/original.jpg" (after the image number).

Thanks John, I have been waiting for that answer. I think Tim is going to post the RAW file.

Thanks again,

Andres

OK, now that at least 2 of us can get at it, here's my shot a BW:

Thanks Tim! For some reason I could not open it from work but I tried .CR2 after right clicking and chahging the save target as and it worked at home.

 Everyone please feel free to work on the RAW file and post your results. I would love to see and know how you accomplished your results.

Thanks,

Andres

Wow, Tim very nice! I noticed that your whites in the clouds are brighter, what is your workflow?

Sky was basically a duplicate layer selected for the sky and blend mode multiply before the bw conversion, plus some fussing around for a couple of spots that got blown out in the process.  My normal workflow left the sky a bit weak, and I liked the intense treatment in your original post so "kicked it up a notch".  

The original RAW was well exposed so there was lots of latitude to work.  At the end, for some reason it had an oversharpened feel so I added a selection mask and blurred the foreground about .3 px and burned it a bit.

BW conversion is also simple, a solid gray layer, blend mode color then a sat adj layer to darken/lighten and change the saturatioin of selected colors.

..forgot to clone out the people on the observation deck.

Andres - where was this taken?

Talk about exposing to the right!  There are exactly 19 pixels clipped, in the RAW green channel.  Can't get much closer than that!
