How I did the post processing of this picture: Captured at the foot of Whistler/Blackcomb, I aimed at a low angle to exclude the sky. Then after enhancing the contrasts and a little colour enhancement of my raw file, I always shoot in raw, I then dodged in some part of the photo along the creek, some stones and vegetation. This lightens and enhance even more the colours. It defines and adds dimensions. Finally I added cyan and reduced magenta in Selective colours to bring the colour of the glacial water exactly to the beautiful aquamarine colour specific to glacial water rich of rock flour that gives it this special colour.
Thx for your comments!
