Focus on Green (Before/After)
A little bit of creativity here because I love the look of shiny black rocks. It took a lot of little adjustments on this one to get the exact look I had in my head. Little colour tweaks and contrast increases to give enough detail and interest to the entire image, as well as hero-ing the falls and reflection.
Looking at the RAW file shows that not a lot has really changed. They're obviously different but the basic structure of the image is the same.
There is a little bit of colour in the rock, but I felt it didn't really add much to the image. Even changing the colour of it slightly to match the greens just gave a muddy look to the whole thing. Overall I like the symmetry you can find throughout the image. Not perfect symmetry but a natural balance considering it's a chaotic scene.
