|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|In Arches National Monument, a fin of Entrada sandstone glows with golden late afternoon light bounced off a neighboring fin. Bounce light can intensify the color, because it picks up the color of its reflectors. In this case, with 2 bounces off of similarly colored rocks between source and camera, the color saturation is doubled, making the rock appear to glow from within.|
This is a recent scan of an old exposure on negative film. The print I received of this exposure at the time of processing was so lifeless that I ignored it for 10 years. But having recently discovered how to scan "problem" negatives, I decided to attempt a salvage, and I'm glad I did!
PP: 1) scan at 4800dpi(Epson 4870 flatbed) using Epson Scan with contrast and saturation restored by individual color-channel tweaks; 2) Downsample in 3 progressive steps with sharpness restoration after each step to preserve fine detail; 3) clone out emulsion scratches and specks; 4) crop right side (dark and soft focus); 5) Add frame and watermark.

beautiful. why branches in blue?
Another good job with the scan here Don, beautifully sharp with saturation and detail that are as crisp and clear as any high resolution digital image.
A well taken photograph too, nice composition and good balance of colour and light.
