About the Image(s)

This image was taken November 2019 in Caddo Lake State Park East Texas. Since it was a cloudy day, the original image looks dim (Please see the attached).

I enriched the colors, lighted shadows and stretched the upper right corner to cover the gray sky by using Camera RAW and Photoshop.

Although it’s not great, I’m happy that it’s better than the original.

Cannon Mark IV with 70-200, f9, 1/640, iso 500

Thank you, Prasad! Because It's a RAW file, it's easy to restore the color back in ACR. The most work is to increase saturation and contrast...... lockdown at home, so I have time to look back my old fold and play around with ps.
