About the Image(s)

Clear open skies on the West Coast of Madagascar gave a pretty hue to the background.

I increased the exposure, cropped and flipped the image horizontally in LR then opened in PS to clone out the residue low bush. I then used content aware to fill in a couple of replacement baobabs in the distance to balance the background. I also dodged the the trunk to expose some highlights and then went back to LR to transform to monochrome. I used the LR preset, Modern 08 and then just played around within this preset till I was happy with the result.

Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm @ 24mm. 6.0sec. f18, iso 64
