Summer monsoons extinguish the wildfires and nourish new life in the ashes.

What works for me:

  • popping colors
  • contrast, particularly the minute contrast on the blades of grass and branches
  • amazing morning (?) lighting


Part of me wants it to be cropped in tighter, or shot closer to 200mm. I think your greens may be a touch too saturated, but that may just be me. It is a lovely image, and I'm very envious of your colors and lighting.

Thanks mate!

Believe it or not I didn't touch the green or yellow channels in Lightroom at all. Its just +9 for Saturation and +9 for Luminance as well. Its really, really green right now as that whole area was burned and the soil is very rich. That's also why some of the usually boring green mesquites are scorched orange. I DID, however, touch the orange and red sliders a bit to give them a bit more red.

Here's one at 200mm, for your curiosity. Depth of field limitations are apparent.
