Raven in the Painted Desert
Today is the 170th anniversary of the publication of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" in the New York Evening Mirror on January 29, 1845. I just worked on these August, 2005, JPGs to see how I could improve them by using Photoshop Elements 12 and opening them in RAW even though they are not RAW files. The "clarity" slider did wonders as far as improving shadow detail.
The bird (raven, I think, judging from the size of the beak) didn't budge from the Agate Bridge sign even though I got within 20 feet of it.
