The Fake Lake


This photo was taken at Garden of the Gods after the big rains we had in September of 2013. What used to be a small reservoir filled with water and stayed a couple of weeks. I call it the Fake Lake.

I made basic adjustments and removed chromatic aberrations in Adobe Camer Raw. In Photoshop I used the Spot Healing Brush to remove some artifacts. I then selected the lower half of the frame with the Qucik Selection Brush and used a selective color adjustment layer to remove the brown tint created by the mud in the water. I added a curves adjustment layer and cropped.
