This morning had some amazing light combined with mist and dew, sadly I didn't have much time for more than a couple of shots.

This is what I did:

1. Crop Image
2. Boost vibrance and Saturation
3. Add an adjustment curve layer to boost highlights and shadows
4. Overlay layer to paint some more lighten water drops a little
5. Add a vignette to a linear burn layer.
6. Flatten Image and Duplicate Layer
7. Sharpen layer with Unsharpen.
8. Add a layer mask to selectively sharpen image.
9. Flatten Image, and export

I'm with Marko. Love that first image. Definitely frame-worthy.

I'm a big fan of #1 as well. Interesting to see your editing flow too. :)

Stunning images Richard. I love the focus. You must have really cranked up the shutter speed to get the background to fade, nice touch. Great work.

Thanks guys,

DanStar the shutter was 1/400 for the first and 1/60 for the second (which was more in the shade) I used a reflector to try and fill the shadows.
