Beautiful Stone Creek cascades down ancient cliffwalls on its way to the Colorado River at the bottom of Grand Canyon National Park.What you don't see in this image is the other photographer who was shooting on the rocks near the cliff walls. I had to remove her using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5's new Content Aware Healing Brush tool . Although she is a dear friend the extra person was an unnecessary element in this composition. To see my video tutorials on this amazing new Lightroom 5 feature visit http://bit.ly/13Hr3llThis image was further enhanced using Adustment Layers and Masks in Adobe Photoshop CC. A touch of Nik's Color Efex Pro 2's Polarizing Filter and Tonal Contrast Filters added a little more punch and drama to the color of the cool blue water. If your river trip takes you anywhere near Stone Creek I urge you to make it a priority!
