Don't you just love when you come upon an old image from several years ago, and using the tools available to us today, you give it a new life? This is exactly what happened with this image. I was sorting through some of my photographs from the southwest and I came upon this image. I brought it into Lightroom and opened up the shadows in the rock range in the background, then I brought down the highlights in the sky ever so slightly. I then went into Photoshop where I converted it into black & white, using Nik Silver Effects. Though the color image is beautiful, I decided to represent this, as I have not seen, in black & white. I then did a levels adjustment to boost the contrast slightly. Lastly, I sharpened it in Photoshop. And here you have, Early Morning Mesa Arch. Enjoy!
