Golden Gate from Wildcat Peak

I took this photograph from the top of Wildcat Peak in Tilden Park looking towards the Golden Gate at sunset, and hiked back down to the Inspiration Point parking lot in the dark. It was kind of chilly, but I had a jacket and my headlamp.

Here’s another photo from the same set that I processed a while ago. The trick with post-processing this image was to maintain the brilliance of the colors without letting them blow out.

I think you’ll agree that this correction is more successful than my earlier one. Here, I converted to the LAB color space and worked in both the A and B channels. Once I converted the image back to RGB, I used Levels to adjust the colors, particularly the red channel. So this image represents a two-step correction model.
