There's Many Opportunities to Survey Grandeur in a National Park (Black & White, Denali National Park & Preserve)

A view looking to the south at the Teklanika River Overlook and Stop. While quite hazy from the recent wildfires in the area and early afternoon sun, I was able to find a good enough shutter speed as I metered this setting. My thinking with this image was to capture a view looking beyond the nearby trees to the braided river flowing by. I did some initial post-processing work making adjustments to contrast, brightness and saturation while playing around as I learned how to work with DxO PhotoLabs 3. Most of the “heavy lifting” came after I used the ClearView tool in that program. I then performed a conversion to black & white using DxO PhotoLab 3 where I made some adjustments to color filters to bring out a much richer tonal contrast for the final image.
