Saguaro Cactus at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum (1983-05-28 0059_03)

28 May 1983

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Tucson, Arizona (Pima County)

Pentax MX  camera with an SMC-Pentax 135mm / f:2.8 lens using Kodak Kodachrome 64 color transparency film exposed at 1/125 of a second at f:11.

Scanned using a Wolverine F2D Mighty scanner.

Note the whirlwind in the background.

Editing was done with Luminar Flex 1.1. I used the Develop filter to lower the highlights and blacks and increase the shadows, whites and clarity. Then I added Accent AI, AI Sky Enhancer and Polarizer, decreased the vibrance and increased the vividness (Brilliance / Warmth filter). Lastly I used the HSL filter to increase the saturation and decrease the luminance in the blues and aquas and used the Erase tool to get rid of some dust spots.
