Re: Creative Interpretations - Dead Lake

A natural for a BW interpretation based on the following method:
* Create a layer from the Red channel
- click on R channel
- Select > all, Edit > copy, click on RGB composite channel
- Back to layers palette
- Edit > paste
* Duplicate this layer and change blend mode of top layer to Vivid light to get some intense contrast
* Select > All, Edit > Copy merge, Edit > Paste result into new layer
* Turn off two layers below

...repeat above for Green and Blue channels.

Experiment with blend modes between layers to come up with a pleasing result. Use layer masks to selectively include/exclude layer content.

Fine tune contrast with Curves adjustment layer.
