Hi Everyone, here are a few images of a recent visit to a cavern that is nearly 200ft underground. There was very little light, so I shot at high ISOs. As such, I went for a high contrast and warm look in post to bring back the images. Please let me know how I could have edited these better. Any and all critiques are welcome! Thanks!

I could also use some posting advice on how to make the images appear smaller in the forum text, thanks!

Welcome to FM and to the PC Forum.

Caves are always a tough gig with the combination of lighting challenges (i.e. low QUANTITY, and poor QUALITY).

That said, these look rather well out of the gate. It looks like you've got some headroom to raise your white point a bit. Also, some latitude to play with additional NR & USM, as well as the resize / down rez for viewing.

Here's some tweaks to one of them ... which I've rotated 180 degrees, as I just found it interesting this way.
Okay, and one the "right" way.

Your call how you want to accent the contrast in diff areas vs. open them up a bit, so you might want to explore using some selective dodge & burn (or other tool of choice) to paint in your lighting scheme.

Again, welcome to the Forum.

Thanks for the critiques! I'll make some of those changes.

I need to practice my dodging and burning. It ends up looking unnatural every time I try.

That's okay ... you'll get there. Our beloved craft is a journey of perpetual improvement, if nothing else.
