Here is the image again after applying Marks recommendations. Used a black layer @ 20% soft light layer and masked out some of the sky with a 50% mask. Thanks again Mark, great to bounce ideas off talented individuals. I think that it has helped improve definition in this image and really brought out the pastels. Scroll down to see the first post.
Taken a while to get to some of these shots but here is Lake Eyre semi full for the second year in a row. This event occurs once every 20 years and I believe that it is still filling. It is an extraordinary thing to see up in a helicopter as it is immense, not to mention difficult to photograph. This was taken on the southern part of the lake trying to get some foreground interest of some of the salt not yet covered by water with the western beach on the horizon to give some scale. Looking north there is no land on the horizon. One thing is for sure, an image does not come close to being there.
