No, the sky is NOT cloned! This canyon is famous around here for its fall colors, and rightly so. I happened to find a nice sky, too, but I had to hike through weeds for a half mile in my slippers to put the effects into the right place relative to the hill and trees.

PP: Put sky and ground on different layers. Sky: autocontrast, then faded until it looked good to me. Used Neatimage to clean it up a bit. Ground: lightened, cloned out a few fence posts, adjusted levels, but not colors (well, okay, when you adjust levels, you are adjusting colors, too). I used my Watercolor Filter and Crosshatch Filter at 15% technique to augment the textures. I also burned the shadows of the aspens at left to bring out their details. Gosh, I can't think of anything else--Oh yeah, I sharpened it, converted to DPC size, sharpened again and added a 4 pixel border.

I hope you enjoy this season as much as I do!

Very, very nice. Great colors although I might adjust the sky to make it a more standard blue.

Just very eye-catching. Nice colours against a pretty dramatic cloudy background.

Lovely! I would have liked to have seen more of the reds from the trees. As is, the colors are a little washed out and not as crisp as they could have been, IMO. Great corner of the world though! Wish I were there.

The striations of the clouds in combination with the great contrast of the warm and cool tones gives this photo the SNAP that I like to see. I wish it were larger - it seems smaller than the 640 maximum allowance. I'd love to see more texture of the beautiful trees. Still a really eye catching landscape. 8
