A walk through my image processing

As you can see, my sensor needs a serious cleaning.
Too many lens changes over the past couple days.
Final Image
That is my landscape workflow in a nutshell, it isn’t the same every time. Lots of times I will adjust levels and color balance, but this was pretty true to what I saw already.
p.s. I forgot to add that, before sharpening I duplicate the layer, sharpen the top image and mask off the spots that do not need sharpening (such as water, clouds, etc..)

    Nice work-flow, I never seem to pull my clarity up that high, but maybe that’s something I’ll experiment in the future.

    Thanks Peyton, I don’t always use that much clarity or any of the exact adjustment settings you see in this post, but I generally use the adjustment tools you see in the workflow.

    each image requires it’s own process in my opinion.

    What software are you using before you open up Adobe CS3?

    Hi Dug,
    I do all of my basic processing in Adobe Lightroom 3 before opening photoshop.

    I have never seen Lightroom in action. I must say that’s pretty impressive stuff. I need more money to try and keep up on all the gear and software.
