Finishing Touches

At DLWS we teach getting it right in the camera and then finishing our images in the digital darkroom.  So, when we stopped at Quechee Gorge in Vermont last week, I had the camera set correctly and then finished it in the digital darkroom.  I removed the color cast in Nikon Capture NX2 and then added my own creative touches in Photoshop using NIK Color Efex Pro 3.0 Tonal Contrast and Glamour Glow.

Finished…

While the difference is not radical, it’s the subtle finishing touches that add the personal touch to our images.
