Aysen, Chilean Patagonia

This picture was taken with a nikon D800 and a wide angle zoom, with polarizer on. It was edited in Lightroom 5, mainly adding several regional radial gradients in different orientations and sizes to modify contrast, luminosity, saturation, clarity and over or underexposure locally. Finaly, it was edited in Photoshop CC to apply overall curves, shadows and highlights, brightness controls and sharpness. I must say that this radial gradient is really fantastic and very practical an easy to use. Comments are welcome.

Great technique, Horatio, it's certainly made the picture come alive.

I think this is great - the contrast and saturation is nicely done.
