I did not do much to the image other than reduce the shadows a bit and use the dehaze filter.

Bruce, indeed this is also an iconic view of the Palouse. You were lucky to encounter beautiful light at the end of the day creating those long shadows of the hills, and very little haze and overcast so you have a good and sharp background. Your PP also improved the image considerably bringing out those intense shades of green, yellow and magenta. Very sharp throughout. I like the leading line created by what looks like a narrow creek   Posted: 10/04/2020 16:07:12

Bruce, What a fabulous image! The light, colors and layers of hills that you captured make this such an effective image.   Posted: 10/04/2020 16:15:24
