didnt have a clue what to do with it apart from some very minor adjustments since its already a great image. so apart from those touch ups, I changed the orientation and did some other heavy PP.

I converted it to TIF also lossless. Some editors will misread the colour profile though.

My entry

Here is my entry:



Interesting thing about this photograph, if you zoom in on one of the rocks and boost the exposure:



(just a little humor - part of Star Wars was filmed at the Trona Pinnacles)

Here is my entry. I wanted to bring this closer to what you might have actually seen,

Lightroom:
1. I lowered the color temperature to about 3k
2. I added some contrast.
3. bumped up the clarity
4. I tried to remove as much of the light pollution as possible because after these steps it was no longer looking natural.
5. At this point I was satisfied with the sky, but all detail in the stone was lost.
6. exported this to photoshop

---
7. remade the enitre image to give a true representation of the stone and what might have been seen by the naked eye by:
8. lowered the color temperature to about 3k
9. got a bit more highlighting in the picture and deepened the shadows.
10. desaturated it alot
11. exported to photoshop
----
12. added the new picture as a layer on the first one.
13. got to work with the erasor on the sky and removed all of it from the second layer
14. done.
