I hate packing. But then again, who actually likes it? Fortunately, my woes will be over on Wednesday when movers… move my earthly possessions a whole whopping 2.5 miles.

But, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a few moments to share an image with you. I processed it today at the onOne office, trying out some new techniques with the Suite. I grabbed it at Elowah Falls a few weeks back with Brian Bonham. Once the dust settles with this move, I can’t wait to get back out and enjoy the beauty of this area some more.

In terms of processing

First, I fiddled around in Lightroom 4.3 RC to get proper tonality. This helped bring out the shadow details that were mostly dark.

Next, I applied Magic Forest and custom Tone and Color Enhancers with Perfect Effects 4 by onOne Software. I then decided to see how well I can render the background out of focus using FocalPoint 2. I was really happy with the results as it really makes the central rock pop.

Final touches were applied in Lightroom 4.3 RC.
