My favorite view from Waihee Ridge is a little less than halfway to the top, looking towards Puu Kukui to the south. The innumerable folds on the walls of the valley add a wonderful texture to the scene, and when the clouds co-operate, it is absolute photographer heaven.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 19mm, 1/400s, f/11, ISO 100
My goal was to capture the feeling of walking along the narrow ridge with the magnificent expanse of this inaccessible valley stretched out ahead of me. I used the wide angle lens to accommodate the trail as well as the valley, and exposed for the shadows, keeping an eye on the histogram to prevent blown out highlights.
Edited in #lightroom4 to even out the histogram and dial back color noise in the shadows, followed by refinements in #nikcolorefexpro4 , a combination of Detail Extractor, Brilliance/Warmth, Skylight, Reflector Efex, Graduated ND, Contrast and Pro Contrast. I finished off by running the processed shot through #nikdefine2 and sharpening with #niksharpenerpro .
