Hi Guys!

Sticking with the 48 hour format + few hours to allow for local time differences. So, evening of Wed. the 8th.

This is the time of year in which I usually take a quick day trip to western Washington or Oregon to soak up some glorious green color and chase away the winter blah. Alas.... as we all know, this year is a different sort of year. I'm pulling out a shot from this time of year last year taken from Lower Panther Creek Falls. Have fun, I hope this helps kill some boredom and finds you all healthy and happy.

That only gives us in Australia about 24hours?

I like the way the log on the right leads your eye, but also felt it was a little too bright compared to the rest of the image. I removed the lens vignette corrections, and did selective sharpening of the land elements and selective clarity reduction of the water.

Did not do too much but did very minor burning and dodging and a bit of cleanup on the log in the foreground. used Topaz Sharpen AI and done. Very beautiful location!

I tried to emphasize the strong diagonal and place the main falls closer to the thirds intersection. Nice image to work with!

What a fun exercise! (...and, BTW, what an awesome shot!)

For my submission I really tried to emphasize the light and warmth of the scene. Even though I suspect it was probably pretty overcast, based on the detail in the shadows, it still looked like there was some directional light hitting part of the landscape. Lifting the orange and red tones helped to boost the warmth and make the greens really pop!

I used multiple masked Luminar 4 layers to target different tonal ranges, colors, and regions in the photo. There's also a simple correction layer to cleanup some distracting stuff in the foreground.

Taking a cue from @BosseBe, I tried this time to use only DxO PL2 for editing the raw file. The only limitation was that when I tried to experiment with different crops, the image disappeared, so I didn't crop.
