It was an eventful day during my driving trip through Arizona and Utah
I woke up early in the morning in Bluff (Utah). I drove straight away to the Valley of the Gods with the goal to capture the morning light.
I made a quick stop at Goosenecks State Park where I photographed
It was uncomplicated shot. I took 3 bracketed shots from the side of the road in Aperture Priority mode, handheld. That was it.
Editing & Processing
It was a simple and uncomplicated a single RAW processing workflow.
First, I used the Crop Overlay tool to straighten the photo and to make composition a bit tighter. I used the process I outlined in the article: How to Straighten a Photo in Lightroom.
Next, I used the Natural preset from my Landscape Preset Collection as the base for Lightroom Rapid Editing. Then I used TOOLKIT to boost the Contrast and the Clarity.
The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Natural (10, 13, 21, 32)
