I pulled out an old photo I took in 2008 and did some new post processing on it. Thought it might be fun to give it a touch of Topaz Adjust. I would love to know if it gets a thumbs up or down.

I remember that it was brutal up there that late afternoon.....cold and so windy.

OK, you asked for it. Here is my original edit that I did three years ago. Don't ask me what I did because I can't remember. You can see that the topaz added more detail in the shadows.

Here is the original unedited photo straight out of the camera. Quite a difference. It was underexposed and really bad.

Terri,
I like it...could you post the original too so we can see the diiference? I bet it would look great on metalic paper.

Looks very nice--I would not have guessed that it was "treated" to a bit of Topaz, and to me that is a therapeutic treatment and good end point. It would be fun to see the original.

Looks like it could be straight out of the camera, a sign of nice processing by me. One wonders how such a structure stands in the face of a strong wind.

Looks real good. I am also curious to see the original to see what topaz added. Normally I don't see topaz photos look this natural. I never tried it but this photo makes me want to give it a go. I always see people do over the top stuff with topaz

Terri, I like the photo a lot, but I find the uneven color in the sky a bit distracting. Did that result from your processing?

This post is very timely. I was just sitting down to see if we can fit in a day at Arches on a western trip we're planning for May. Thanks for posting it!

The new one looks pretty close to the old edit, the reds appear to have a color shift in the newer version. Both are nice Terri.

Very nice image and from a perspective that I have not seen before. I hiked out to Delicate Arch several decades ago, back in my film days, and plan on hiking out again this May. I am attending the Moab Photo Symposium again this year and this is in my bucket list.

If anyone is interested in the symposium, I suspect they have slots open. It is a relatively inexpensive gathering, small and intimate, more like a photo club meeting, and a great learning experience. Last year there was rain, thunderstorms, and even snow one morning - perfect weather and location for a group of photographers.

Sounds like so much fun. Wish I could go..... Grandbaby No. 8 is due that weekend. Think I better stick around home.
