I feel like the color of the origin photo is very balanced, and there isn't a strong focal point to me. Therefore, I adjusted the curves and changed the blending mode to luminosity to increase the color contrast between the waterfall and the rock. And then, I adjusted the levels to show even more stronger on the contrast since level adjustment could pull out more of the black and white. Then, I used channel mixer to bring out more green from the moss which is located mostly on the left hand side of the photo. Lastly, I used dodge and burn to sharpen the whole photo out a bit, so that it won't be too dull. After the enhancements that I made, I feel like the photo is more alive and textural.

  1. After you increase the contrast, the water flow becomes easier to catch my eyes. The green color of the leaves also pops up and creates a great guide for me to view this photo. Great job!
