What now? The photographer supplied us with the color original, so we first made a duplicate background layer in Adobe Photoshop CS3, then used the Multiply Blend tool to increase shadow density -- in effect, giving us a little more detail to work with. Then we used the Channel Mixer to convert to monochrome, but here we did something a little more involved than usual. In viewing the image in the different channels, we saw that the sky looked good in the red channel alone, and the ground looked good in the blue channel alone. So we put them in two separate layers and combined them. Because this made the sky so dark, it made a lone cloud in the top center of the original frame fight for your attention, so we cloned it out to make an even, dark expanse.
