5. THE FINAL IMAGE

Finally, I gently color toned the image using a combination of Exposure Software X6 and color balance. I also increased exposure and contrast optimized for uploading to social media. I enjoy editing just as much as I do shooting, if not more. If my image makes you ask whether it’s a photograph or a painting, then I know I’ve accomplished my goal.
