This photo was taken back in June during our visit to Moab.

I had visited Upheaval Dome earlier in the day, but was not happy with the results.  Yet some of my photos from the same day were pretty good.  I also got some decent photos of Upheaval Dome last year.  I remembered that I had used a polarizing filter on the lens that I had used the year before, but I didn’t yet have one for the wide angle lens that I was using for my shots of Upheaval Dome.  I stopped into the camera shop to try to purchase one, but they had just closed.

On the way back to the truck, we noticed this Laundry.  I took a photo of it, but didn’t process it until now.  I shot it hand-held and the ISO ended up being up at 1600 with a lot more noise than I’d like.  I used Lightroom to set the color temperature and do some noise reduction and then imported the three bracketed photos that I had taken into Photomatix.  I played around with the settings a bit and then tweaked it a bit more in Lightroom.
