Lupo had a great time on the trails Friday afternoon, it was pretty nice for a late autumn day, about 65F, perfect weather.

Post Processing:

Re-exposed original RAW file into 3 separate JPEGs, then tone-mapped them. I re-touched in PS to improve some highlights, no sharpening, I liked the softness of the shrubs.

Excellent use of adjustments. Has just enough of a tonemapped look to give it a lot of wow-factor, but not enough to make it unrealistic. I'd like to know what you specifically used and did on this shot.
