I decided to do multiple edits of some clouds (influence: Amy's edits). I don't like things as edited as she does, but I need to practice going-out-of-the-box with my edits....and it's really hard for me, lol. I'll see what I can do with some of the river pics I have.
Near-original (slight contrast and noise removal)
Temperature drop (not far. With noise-removal)
High-contrast (with noise-removal)
Temperature raised to the high mid-range (also used noise-removal)
SUPER contrast with earth tone filter and a tiny amount of noise removal
Overall scene (contrast, saturation, noise removal)
You can tell I like noise removal, though sometimes it doesn't do much.
