Just south of Colorado Springs, we have the Bluestem Prairie Open Space wrapped around the Big Johnson Reservoir. There are some old ranch structures still hanging on. I used David’s approach to creating bnw in creating this photo. Having taken this approach maybe half a dozen times now, I find it works well. And, I can do the whole process in LR.
Very nice work! Did you do any burning and dodging?
Yes. Gradients and brushes.
