Only lightroom was used.
The left hand side of the photo had to be cropped away due to a totally over blown sun. The bottom was cropped away to get rid of a fence. The top was cropped to prevent the cloud line from running across the middle of the photo.
Beyond that, minimal tweaking of white white balance, exposure, shadows & highlights, contrast, clarity, vibrance, noise reduction and sharping was applied. Finally a little use of the gradient tool and a bit of brushwork to finish off.
While visiting the Natal-Midlands, last year June, I went out one morning (once the snow had melted) to see if I could find a landscape shot. To large degree it was a wasted and very cold outing. On return home, I had uploaded the photos taken to my laptop and that was the last I looked at them.
Having recently installed LightRoom 5 on my computer, I decided to sort my catalogs out and in the process rediscovered this and two other photo's taken that morning.
