This morning, Kevin let me use his fisheye lens to take this shot at Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park. It is my favorite shot of the morning and I had lots of help editing it. When complete frustration at my editing efforts became apparent, Richard stepped in to help; then he suggested I ask Moose for help, which I did. When Moose came to my rescue, he asked me what I didn’t like about the photo and I told him I didn’t like the brightness at the center of the shot. He first suggested cropping, then when I was still displeased, he suggested I reduce the brightness of the upper left blues and that I decrease the highlights and increase exposure. Wow! What a difference. I love this shot; the background reminds me of the background of the Mona Lisa. Hmmm. If I didn’t know that Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa in the early 1500’s, I would swear he came to Mesa Arch to paint it.
