About the Image(s)

When we were in Chattanooga TN, we visited Rock City, on top of Lookout Mountain, with its endless massive rock formations to climb over, under, and through. I photographed the 2 boys carefully making their way down a steep and narrow staircase.

The settings on my Sony RX100 M6 camera were 1/320 sec at f/3.5, ISO 250, 14.4 mm.

I edited highlights, shadows, white and black points. texture, decreased the luminance in the greens, increased the temperature and the tint, and used the graduated filter to darken areas I thought were still too bright. What else do you suggest?

You've come around the world so to speak from your original image. I wouldn't touch this final for anything. It's got the kids highlighted, the texture in the stone walls, the depth of field in the steps. The only thing that a judge might nit pick on is that the greens might be a tad too bright which you can easily correct and choose which you like better. Extremely well done.   Posted: 05/07/2021 20:32:48
