I had to do a lot of dodging and burning to define the outlines, shadows and highlights as the midday NM sun tends to wash out everything beneath it. I softened the harsh edges in PS too.

Congratulations on your finalist on this, Aggie. The tones are lovely and you did a great job rescuing it from the harsh midday light--it looks warm but not at all blown out.

Aggie, This is a wonderful image. The center placement actually works here. I would like to see it with some extra burning on the edges to draw the eye in even more. You do lovely work.
