Red Rock Canyon Overlook

A redux of a shot in the first batch of images I uploaded to Flickr. In that time, my Photoshop knowledge has expanded greatly. Still so much to learn though :)


Cropped the original for a better composition, imo. Added a duplicate layer set to soft light at 50% opacity to increase contrast. Played with the color curves to enhance the blacks. Then added two layers of orange filter, one at 100% opacity and the other at 60% to warm up the image and give the sun rays those golden tones. Overall, I am really pleased how this came out. Hope you like it.
