As I mentioned yesterday, I took Rhowan and Harmony to see the wreck of the Riverdance yesterday morning, and while I only got one shot of the boat that I'm happy with, I got three of Rhowan and Harmony. Unusually, I have two of Harmony that I like and just one of Rhowan. This is the first one of Harmony.

As for the post-production: this one was processed almost exclusively in RAW Developer using LAB curves. RAW Developer has a great Curves, tool that includes the 'a', 'b' and Lightness curves in addition to the standard RGB curves, and if you have a Mac I'd suggest you give it a try. Unfortunately there isn't a PC version of this programme.

Also, if you're unfamiliar with LAB Color mode you might want to take a look at my first LAB Color mode tutorial that explains the basics with respect to the various LAB channels.

As always, let me know what you think.
