Alaska glacier color resized 1000

Not all pics need a lot of work. This photo was from an Alaskan cruise in July 2006, where it seemed like every picture I took was soaring and dramatic. It was definitely one of the highlights of my life!

I was lucky enough to take this photo on a beautiful sunny day which highlighted the strong blue colors in sea, ice, mountains and sky. It just needed some minor lighting and contrast adjustments.

Since the picture had so many horizontal lines, I experimented with the edges a bit. I used the vignette tool in a blue tone to soften the right and left edges before adding a darker blue museum matte frame.
