It took a while for the Bolivia Hop bus to make its way out of the congested streets of La Paz but eventually we were clear and heading off towards Lake Titicaca. This was our first quick stop en route; I imagine there must be quite a few shots taken from this same vantage point but that doesn’t make it any less beautiful. This is also one of the first images where I’ve tried out the masking tools in Capture One and, once I remembered the shortcuts, it was easy to use, with the usual brush size-hardness-opacity sliders. The split tone effect was also achieved in C1, reducing the overall saturation to somewhere around 85% and then using the Color Balance tool to add the tonality. I remember reading about the technique in this article here and really like the level of control you get.
