Title: The quiet fall #4Nikon D50

I've selected by hand certain areas of the rocks and with a feathering of 10 pixels increased the brightness and decreased the contast in the shadows and darker side of the rocks to bring out a little more detail and decreased the brightness and increased the contrast in the brighter parts of the foreground rocks.

I also straightened the picture a touch becuase all of the trees seemed to have a significant lean on them (this may actually be the case - I can imagine this being a wind swept area), but the photo just seemed to beneift from a slight rotation.

I have also increased the contrast in the main mountainside and decreased it in the smaller mounatin... again with a feathering effect on 10 pixels so that the 'join' can't be seen. then just added a little more saturation and ran an unsharp mask - about 10 mins work in total.

Normally everything but the unsharp mask would be done on the full size picture with a feathering of upto 200 pixels...

Hope you don't mind Mike
