This one was taken some time ago, and isn't entirely dissimilar to this one, but the reason I've put it up is that it was processed in a rather different way to my usual images. A few days ago I got hold of a copy of 'Photoshop LAB Color' by Dan Margulis that, in essence, is 360 pages (give or take a chapter or two) devoted to using Curves in LAB color rather than RGB or CMYK. I haven't quite got my head around it yet, and will explain it better when I have, but I think it's probably something I'll be pursuing as it presents a radically different way of thinking about the colour and contrast in an image. The subtitle is one of the best I've seen too: 'The Canyon Conundrum and Other Adventures in the Most Powerful Colorspace' – who could resist? ;-)
If any of you have read it, please let me know what you think.
