Snoozing Polar Bear
This is a perfect example of why you want to re-evaluate your old photos in light of your new tools and techniques. This image was taken on 8/2/2005 at the San Diego Zoo but I was not (at that time) able to process it in any satisfying way.
Enter Viveza and ColorEfex Pro 4 to the rescue. Using these products permitted the image to pop. Viveza brought out the textures of the bear’s fur and the rock faces and then ColorEfex’s Detail Extractor and Pro Contrast sealed the deal. The previously unprintable image is now a quintessential image of a snoozing polar bear!
