From RAW, increased BLACKS, countered with FILL LIGHT, added RECOVERY.

In PS, adjusted LEVELS, used a recorded ACTION using UNSHARP MASK. Increased VIBRANCE and SATURATION, then brightened the SHADOWS a bit. Sized, Bordered (another recorded ACTION), and saved.

This is usually just a trickle, and during the drought, it's been bone dry. Today it was raging, and further up the road, it's covered in snow. Beautiful place to live.

Something always has to gum up the works. I had to clone out an annoying power line that literally cut the photo in half, left to right.

I predict 5.85. Of course, that's based on how much I like it! :)
