Ririe Thrasher 2014: I found this thrasher in Ririe, ID.
I did some initial Lightroom adjustments before taking the image to Photoshop, followed by two Topaz Texture filters. Lastly, I added a Glamour Glow filter in NIK Color Efex Pro. That softened some of the image, but I used a layer mask to bring back the sharpness of a few key areas. I adjusted the layer opacity on each and added some additional layers masks as needed. There are actually lots of mini composition possible within the original 35 mpx capture. Nikon D800 and Nikon 27-70mm lens.
