May 2021 - Highway to Monument Valley

About the Image(s)

One of the iconic images of Monument Valley captured in 2010 on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II fitted with the Canon 24-105 f4 USM zoom set at 105mm, f16, 1/40 sec, -2/3 stop EV, ISO 100.

Initially processed in colour with CEP 4 Detail Extractor and Pro Contrast layers and a series of masked and unmasked Curves with a hint of Vibrance. Converted to monochrome in SEP 2 and further adjusted on CEP 4 Detail Extractor and Pro Contrast layers and a series of masked and unmasked Curves. Slight granularity in the sky removed on a Topaz Denoise A1 layer. As usual this jpeg was sharpened using the High Pass filter in Soft Light mode and sharpening halos removed where necessary.

HI Paul: This location is almost in my back yard.. only a day's drive from where I live. An iconic shot taken from the middle of the highway.... which leads the eye directly to monument valley. Beautiful sky, tack sharp and beautifully processed. As you probably know, driving through this area...the driver has to be VERY careful of photographers lurking about and popping out at unexpected times... trust me... I know!   Posted: 05/10/2021 10:29:34
