  • What did you use for it? It looks really good on this photo.
    • Photoshop 7.

      Basic process was:
      • Convert to lab.
      • In Curves, bring the a and b channels in about 20 points at the top and bottom. This enhances the colours a bit without blowing anything out (comes from Dan Margulis' book "Photoshop LAB Color: The Canyon Conundrum").
      • Convert back to RGB
      • Add layer, selective colour. Saturated and desaturated some colours until I was happy.
      • Add layer, curves. Basic S-shaped curve to bring out the contrast.
      • Using the lasso tool, selected an outline around the image with a 100px feather, inverted the selection.
      • Layer, new via copy.
      • Set that new layer's mode to Multiply. Play with opacity a bit if it's too much.

      It's a combination of these techniques (custom every time) that I tend to use on most of my images. It really gives them that extra pop.
