Back to Photoshop - The Levels Command

This is Monument Rocks, just south of Oakley, KS. Although when we got there I was immensely pleased with the light, particularly the sky, I felt the pictures were a little washed out (the heat made us feel, indeed, washed out). But a little help from the Photoshop "Levels" command produced what you see below, which is what I saw in my "mind's eye" when I took the picture with my Nikon D200). I find the middle "slider" in the Levels window particularly useful - just play with it.
This is a wide-angle shot, by the way, with my zoom lens set at 18 mm, giving the sky that "Kansas Bowl" look which characterizes the Great Plains.
