Really nice photo. Next time I go hiking I need to look more closely. I'm missing a lot!

Yes, sorry - I'm just feeling perky because I am coming back to life after a sinus infection that caused me to miss all of the last challenge. I was feeling so rotten I couldn't think of any book worth illustrating. But I'm glad now to be back among the living, and able to appreciate your beautiful photograph. I like the subtle grays, and gray greens, and the way they are tied together with the grain of the stone. A work of art.

Default Sabattier

I like the lines and pattern. As soon as the image appeared on the screen I thought of an alien ocean seen from a high sky view, then I though of the Sabattier effect.

If you want to experiment.

In Photoshop or other image editor:

1) increase the contrast with LEVELS

2) Open CURVES

3) Select the middle of the curves lines, and click on the middle to anchor the line at that point

4) "grab" the lower left end of the curve with the cursor and move the end up to the upper left top to form a "U"

5) Experiment with the depth of the "U" formed by curve and adjust the levels control to suite your taste.
