One Mitten

Another in my handful of years-old photos that I reprocessed with new versions of ACR, LR, Photoshop and new software I've acquired since then. It does make a difference. This shot in Monument Valley was in very harsh light. I got a bit more out of it this time.

Very well composed image...seems pushed a bit toward the warm side, but maybe that was your intent from your mention of harsh light

thanks Frank. Oddly, there is no deliberate adjustment to the color, Monument Valley has some intense colors, some places it is so orange it almost seems purple. The push was in light and detail, reducing contrast and raising blacks and shadows to get back some detail in the harsh shadows. I also pulled a Frank and flipped it. It seemed better that way somehow.

Monument Valley is almost an indescribable place and is a must to visit. It's a photographer's playground and a must to visit. We were there in 2015 and plan to return. Since we were pushed for time, harsh mid-day lighting was all I could capture. Sunrise/sunset & the blue hour would be an absolute dream to capture.

Minnie I can't say enough about your posted photo, it's a marvelous captured image.

Thanks Dave. I know what you mean about the harsh light. If I ever get back, I’d like to stay in the hotel on the premises, that’s the only way to get in there early enough. I took these about 8 am and light was already harsh though still warm.

I've want a return visit as well and wanted to stay close in the area for a couple of days. Maybe a group planned trip in another year or so? https://utah.com/monument-valley

Yes, I’d love to see more of red rock country too.

And more of everything else, from Yosemite to Acadia. And all in between. So much beauty!
