Basically a re-edit of an image from last year. I used Dan Margulis techniques from LAB Frontier on kelbyTraining.com and then decided to see if I could recreate it in RGB using my usual tools - in fact it wasn't difficult using RGB and Akvis Enhancer to come pretty close to the same and every bit as good and frankly a whole lot easier.
What was interesting is that compared to my usual dozens of curves masked layers, I think I only used one, and a couple of hue saturation adjustments to fine tune the orange in the rocks (it had been a rather ugly yellow/green without help). Am I getting better or just going too far - time will tell.
