If you have the RAW try to open up exposure more, this may correct some of the colors, but i am afraid that opening the exposure more will .... the noise more, but good start.

Actually Tareq, I brought the exposure down a bit during post processing. I'll bring it back up and see if that helps with bring out more detail in the dark areas and adjust the blue or cool tone of the overall shot. Also, the lower left corner is water and it looks like dead space, so I'm do some cropping to see if that help with the shot looking a little under exposed.

Thanks for your input!

As i said, i checked your pic or this thread including your post with pic in 3 different computers, 2 with calibrated monitors and one is not calibrated, and with all monitors it is underexposed shot, but i really don't know if this is what you look for then it is nice, i can't comment on others goals or pp.

No worries! I like the feed back. From my monitors, I see very good detail in dark areas of the rocks in the foreground, (except the water, in the lower left corner) I'll reprocess and and repost the picture this evening, hopefully with better results!

Ok! Here it is Tareq, I posted the exact image (no cropping) to show comparison of the before and after! I basically added more warmth to the picture to correct the blue or cool look of the overall color cast. I dodged the dark areas the most but dodged the entire picture overall.
Thanks for your input!

So agin, comments are welcomed...everyone!

^^^ As i expected, the first one is way better than the second, WOW, the difference is really noticeable, and i like how the shot became nice after the pp, sure medium format result is strong.

Thanks again!

Of course, when the exposure was increased, the disturbing point that lone leaf creates in the lower portion, left of centre, was made even more disturbing.

Hey Alveric, by disturbing, do you mean distracting?

Kind of. Disturbing points being point-like elements in a photograph that were overlooked during the exposure and end turn out to be annoying as they tend to perversely attract and hold the eye.

Point well taken. Because there's a lot of dead space in the lower left corner, this shot will be cropped in the final version. Thx everyone for your input!

Hey, Presha! In your original post, that's Red Rock, right?! Do you live in Las Vegas?

I agree, the darker rendition makes the lower right almost detailless black. And then about half way down the left edge of the frame, in the darker version there is a black detailess area just above the mossy green, yet in the lighter version of that shot, there is a bit of detail which can be discerned and stronger green in the moss. I like the lighter version.

Perhaps Presha's monitor is adjusted too bright?!
