Tempted to call this a work in progress. Have a try at improving it. I enjoyed the process, but I was not entirely successful. My foreground is not “fore” enough, and my shadows could use some tweaking.
This is from a photo taken at the Chapel of the Cross in Sedona. A day trip with my recent visitors. This grouping was at the bottom of the hill, beneath the Chapel. I was so in love with the purple prickly pears, I didn’t even notice the nopales heart. Did you notice?
Something is not quite right. Just couldn’t figure it out. So I took a look at the desaturated image. Hmm, that might be the answer. Now, how to fix it. I will think on it a day or two. Suggestions are always welcome.
