One Bright Tulip

Down into the depth of pleasure. 
    A bee will go. The seeds will 
not
     ripen into full fertility.
This plant has
    other plans. To clone itself
    works even better 
than          seeds.

The Death Valley’s Dantes View (California)
Check how photo looked straight from the camera, how it was taken and processed
http://www.phototraces.com/deconstructing-photo/the-death-valleys-dantes-view-california/

The Dantes View was the first stop in the Death Valley National Park during my drive from Las Vegas to the Eastern Sierra (California).

It takes 20km of an uphill ride to get from the elevation blow sea level at the valley all the way to 1700m (5,476 ft). When I entered the national park it was pretty hot and dry, what you normally expect from the desert. And when I stepped out of the car at the Dantes View I did not expect to face a chilly breeze. I dad to dive into the trunk of the car to fish out some warm clothes.

Even in the middle of the day with the harsh afternoon light and empty sky the view was simply spectacular. The colors, the textures, and the shapes were unforgettable.

SHOOTING & PROCESSING

The challenge with the shooting was the vastness of the scene. From the moment I saw it I knew that I would have to do some kind of panoramic composition.

I took only two shots because I did not want to go beyond 16×9 aspect ration for the composition.

It was the perfect opportunity to test a brand new Boundary Warp feature in Panorama Merge module.

After, I used Rapid Editing fro Landscapes. I described the process in tutorial Lightroom Rapid Editing System for Landscapes.

I applied Lightroom preset Natural from my Landscape Collection and after I used TOOLKIT to increase brightness(exposure), to boost colors and contrast.

The Lightroom Preset Editing Formula: Natural (2, 8, 12, 17, 22)

The last step in Lightroom was to clean up the sky using the Spot Removal tool.

In Photoshop, I used the Stamp Tool to clean up the image by removing the distractions in the foreground.
