The photo I bring for this, ABFriday Forum Week 21, was taken in Iguazu Falls, Argentina, last year. Of course, such a huge and spectacular nature marvel offers you thousands opportunities to shot your camera. I decided to work with this picture because it shows the authentic landscape you find everywhere around that place.
First of all, I cropped the image to get rid of those body parts in the right edge of the photo.
Then, duplicated the layer and applied a new level adjustment layer to open the shadows and make those people more visible. Next, a layer masks to get back the overexposed background in the previous step.
Finally, I decided to apply the Jose M. Mellado’s 3D Light technique, that I introduced last week, in order to contrast, and highlight, a bit more, the falls in the background which, in the end, are the main attractions of the place.
