1206_0019 Plains Bison

For this image of a majestic bull bison, I started in RAW adjustments by bumping up the clarity, then desaturating. After that I created a monochrome version, adjusting individual color channels until I liked the look. Finally, in Photoshop, I increased the vibrance, adjusted the contrast in curves, and added a sepia wash. Voila! - instant Old West! Photographed in Grasslands National Park, Saskatchewan.
