This is a backlog image from a 2011 trip to Death Valley. This was taken on an overcast and windswept morning. The raw images from that shoot are very low contrast. Working contrast and definition back into the tones brings out some wonderful color, texture and luminosity I think. Thanks to Alan Majchrowicz for the title idea :-) If you enjoy my work you might like my video tutorials including The Complete Guide to Luminosity Masks.
