Ode to Photoshop

The more I use Photoshop the more I'm amazed. The power of the image tools equals the power of the photographer's imagination. Oh so often I've seen exactly the picture I want, at least in my mind's eye, only to return with a picture that is dark, muddy, lacking in color saturation and contrast, and cluttered. Such is the picture above – of the famous Mayan cemetery at San Juan Chamula in Chiapas, Mexico.

Below, though, thanks to the cropping, hue/saturation, and brightness/color tools of Photoshop, is the picture I saw in my mind when I snapped the shutter.
