Lesson 4. Landscape, Page, Arizona

It doesn’t look like it, but I took this shot right around dusk on my way to a tiny airport in Page, Arizona, to meet my buddy Matt’s flight. When I opened it in Photoshop, I was surprised to see it didn’t look nearly as warm as it did when I took the shot, and I was disappointed that the water looked so, well...lame. We’ll use the 7-Point System to fix the exposure and color balance problems, but we’ll use a good ol’ bit of Photoshop magic to make the water look the way we wish it had.
